Karl Rove, William Canary, and the
Siegelman Case
By Scott Horton of Harper's

... Rove’s linkage to this campaign has been reported before and
belongs to the insider’s account of Alabama politics—but Raw Story
brings in considerable additional detail. The Rove involvement is
unfolded with a flow chart showing the complex relationships....and
the central figure in the process is certainly William Canary, the
husband of the U.S. Attorney who brought the Siegelman
prosecution. Rove and Canary go way back, certainly to Canary’s
days on the Republican National Committee.

Siegelman Speaks! Ex-Gov Calls '02 Election
"Stolen" by the White House!  
Video Interview by Julie Sigwart of Take Back the Media

Here is some amazing video: a very candid interview with Don
Siegelman, who spoke to Julie Sigwart of Take Back the Media on
Sept. 13, 2004--months before the Governor was finally put away on
trumped-up charges by the Alabama GOP.

Judge: White House visitor logs are public
documents
From Bill Mears CNN

The White House must release its visitor logs and cannot hide behind
a shield of privilege, a federal judge ruled Monday. The Bush
administration has resisted public disclosure while it fights a lawsuit
over alleged political influence by conservative Christian leaders.

Noel Hillman Gets a Subpoena
by Empty Wheel of Firedoglake (Blog)

....Well, it turns out [Hillman] did get subpoenaed.

As a reminder, Noel Hillman used to be head of the Public Integrity
Section of DOJ. Now he's a judge in New Jersey and had been an
appointee to the Appeals Court, before Bush got cold feet and pulled
his nomination. Jill Simpson, the lawyer who has sworn under oath
that Karl Rove was involved in the prosecution of Don Siegelman,
testified that Rove was arm-twisting Hillman to prosecute Siegelman.
