Rove's Political Hit On Gov. Siegelman Comes From The Top

This story is only going to get bigger, and bigger, and bigger.

The Republicans currently in charge in the state of Alabama are running the place as if it were a Third World banana republic. The depth of corruption, favoritism, cronyism, and ineptitude of Alabama's state government is breathtaking, and is just beginning to come to light.

Sweet Jesus, with all the real problems facing the state, they have an attorney general there who spends his time and the state's resources recording post-mortem duets with Johnny Cash and trying to enforce a sex toy ban!

So far, we know the following men are involved in the political "hit" against former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman which resulted in his railroading on trumped-up charges and unjust imprisonment for nine months:

Karl Rove (Bush operative and right hand man)
Gov. Bob Riley (R., Ala.)
Atty. Gen. Troy King (R., Ala.)

Gov. Siegelman himself told me from his federal prison cell that "Karl Rove's fingerprints are all over" the politically motivated "taking out" of the popular Siegelman, the most successful Democrat in Alabama.

It doesn't take a genius to see that, from Rove, the dirty tendrils of this conspiracy reach all the way up to George W. Bush. Siegelman, before his release on bond, was the highest-ranking political prisoner of the Bush regime.

The worst of Siegelman's troubles came after he was asked in 2004 about meeting President Bush at a Governors' Conference a few years before. Gov. Siegelman said he found Bush "not very bright." Not so coincidentally, Karl Rove came sniffing around soon after.

Gov. Siegelman has now been asked to testify before Congress about the improper prosecution against him.
