GOP “Justice” In Alabama & Mississippi:
Paul Minor & the Siegelman & Shuler Cases (Help Mrs. Minor)
Thread at Democratic Underground.com

.....
The first trial resulted in a deadlocked jury and after being retried,
Minor was immediately shackled and manacled and taken away and
not allowed to be free while appealing, unusual for white-collar cases.
Some of this sound eerily familiar? It should, if you have paid any
attention to the case of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.
Siegelman is out of prison, though not in the clear, as his appeal goes
forward both in the courts and in the public forum, the public appeal
demonstrated by his interviews with ’60 Minutes’ and MSNBC’s ‘The
Verdict’ with Dan Abrams. The House Judiciary Committee wants to
talk to him in Washington. Yesterday, the Siegelman case found its
way onto the pages of The Washington Post, with a headline
proclaiming "Former Alabama Governor Turns Tables On Justice
Department".

Schnauzer to the Washington Post
by Roger Shuler of Legal Schauzer

.....The Deep South, particularly Alabama and Mississippi, has
become Ground Zero in the evolving Bush DOJ scandal, which started
with the firings of nine U.S. attorneys in December 2006. Siegelman is
the best known target of the Bush DOJ. But a case in Mississippi
involving attorney Paul Minor, a prominent donor to numerous
Democratic candidates, might be an even more alarming and clear
example of a political prosecution.

Why is the Deep South important in this story? Well, former White
House advisor Karl Rove built his national reputation on Alabama
state court races in the mid 1990s and maintains close ties to the
state's GOP hierarchy, including campaign consultant Bill Canary.
Canary, of course, is reported to have played a central role in
launching the Siegelman investigation. Rove also is close to high-level
Repulblicans in Mississippi, including sitting governor Haley Barbour.
