The Case: Correct Gross Miscarriage of Justice: Republicans and Democrats Unite for Former Governor Don Siegelman’s Clemency
Written into America’s genetic code is the proposition that the United States will always pursue democracy, right the wrongs, establish an environment of peace and justice for all. Today’s reading: this is pulp nonfiction. The current Vegas School of justice is gambling with a direct assault on America’s values, money system and our judicial past and future. It’s all done by sleight of hand, concealed by economic and legal double-speak.
To avoid the abyss towards which we are heading, Dana Speigleman, the daughter of former governor Don Siegleman is launching a high-profile petition to reveal the deception of their predatory practices in order to reverse and legally overturn these policies.
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, former Governor of Alabama Don Siegleman is now serving 6 years in a Louisiana penitentiary as a result of Karl Rove’s Machiavellian manipulation of politics and our judicial system. But, if truth were the final arbiter, then the roles would be reversed and Karl Rove would be in jail. At the very least, Rove should be cited for reckless endangerment of the truth, in other words, perjury. With Rove, we pledge allegiance for injustice for all.
