The State Democratic Executive Committee has approved a resolution
calling for an investigation of former Gov. Don Siegelman's conviction
and for Siegelman to be freed from federal prison while the
investigation is conducted.

The executive committee passed the resolution on a voice vote
Saturday in Montgomery.

The resolution, proposed by committee member Vi Parramore of
Birmingham, calls for "a full investigation into the mishandling of
evidence in Don Siegelman's case" and the prosecution of anyone
who incarcerated Siegelman due to political motives.

Siegelman a victim of politics as usual

...Even if Siegelman were the biggest crook since Jack Abramoff,
you'd think the Justice Department -- with a Democrat in its gunsights
-- would have gone out of its way to appear impartial by sending in a
special prosecutor. Instead, the wife of a well-connected GOP
operative headed the case for months. Meanwhile, the Justice
Department has refused to turn over its files to the House Judiciary
Committee.

It's no wonder the stench of a partisan persecution hovers about this
case.

makes Don Siegelman the St.
