This week we are turning over the BuzzFlash Wings of Justice Award to our colleague, tireless advocate for fair voting and justice, author and professor Mark Crispin Miller:
“Prior to the race for the 2000 presidential nominations, Siegelman, then governor of Alabama — and a Democrat — spoke honestly about what he believed to be the incapacity of his fellow governor, George W. Bush, to serve as U.S. president. For this he earned the enmity of Karl Rove, who then engineered the theft of Siegelman’s re-election in 2002, and, subsequently, two federal indictments, the first of which came to nothing, and the second of which resulted in a seven-year sentence on a charge of bribery.
