Part one of a Raw Story Investigates series on the architects
and the execution of backroom Republican politics

For most Americans, the very concept of political prisoners is remote
and exotic, a practice that is associated with third-world dictatorships
but is foreign to the American tradition. The idea that a prominent
politician -- a former state governor -- could be tried on charges that
many observers consider to be trumped-up, convicted in a trial that
involved numerous questionable procedures, and then hauled off to
prison in shackles immediately upon sentencing would be almost
unbelievable.
