Here’s another link to the article complete with hyperlinks: It Does Happen In America – The Political Trial of Don Siegelman by Paul Craig Roberts

Updated: Mar 1, 2008

Don Siegelman, a popular Democratic governor of Alabama, a Republican state, was framed in a crooked trial, convicted on June 29, 2006, and sent to Federal prison by the corrupt and immoral Bush administration.

The frame-up of Siegelman and businessman Richard Scrushy is so crystal clear and blatant that 52 former state attorney generals from across America, both Republicans and Democrats, have urged the US Congress to investigate the Bush administration’s use of the US Department of Justice to rid themselves of a Democratic governor who “they could not beat fair and square,” according to Grant Woods, former Republican Attorney General of Arizona and co-chair of the McCain for President leadership committee. Woods says that he has never seen a case with so “many red flags pointing to injustice.”

The Alabama G.O.P. Wrestles with Retraction
One of the most interesting sideshows coming out of the transmission of the 60 Minutes segment dealing with former Alabama Governor Don E. Siegelman has been the conduct of the Alabama G.O.P. The CBS piece features direct charges leveled at Karl Rove and at Bush Administration prosecutors.

  3. should be up on later this evening, on LewRockwell tomorrow,
    CounterPunch will have it, also Information Clearing House, by the weekend or Monday

  4. Eddie Curran is fighting for his credibility now that his past articles are being reviewed. I feel between now and the November elections that there will be many investigators looking real close at how, Rob Riley, Ralph Reid, Toby Roth, William Canary, Dan Gans, Dax Swatek, Willian Pryor and Karl Rove managed to smear Siegelman’s Education Lottery, and get Bob Riley elected twice all funded by millions of dollars from lobbyist Michael Scanlon’s and Jack Abramoff’s Mississipi Indian clients.

    A lot of voters are wondering why John McCain didn’t expose Alabama’s corruption. McCain is the chairman of the Indian Affairs Committee who headed up the investigation and wrote a very detailed June, 2006 report on how Scanlon and Abramoff used scare tactics as lobbyist to steal 84 million dollars of gambling money from six indian tribes; however, E-Mails reveal that he covered up vital evidence when the money crossed over into Alabama to be used as bribe money for Riley to block and oppress the Alabama Poarch Indians and to stop Siegelman who the Choctaw Indians feared would create a lottery and allow the Al. Poarch Indians to be licensed to compete with the Choctaw Indians.

    This is the only state where a large portion of the money flowed that U.S. attorneys never launched an investigation. No one was ever arrested, question or prosecuted. Where were you Eddie Curran when we needed an investigative reporter to blow this Abramoff and Scanlon rat hole wide open?
