1. Karl Rove Destroyed My Life
by Paul Alexander of the Daily Beast

Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman blames Republican dirty
tricks for the nine months he spent in prison. He talks to the Daily
Beast’s Paul Alexander about clearing his name, anger at Rove—and
mopping prison floors. Plus, read Scott Horton’s piece on What the
Justice Department is Hiding.

Last week, Al Gore sent an email message urging supporters to give
money to Don Siegelman’s legal defense fund. Gore is the latest in a
string of high profile supporters to suggest Siegelman, the former
Governor of Alabama, was the victim of a Republican plot when he
was found guilty of bribery, conspiracy and fraud in 2006, and
sentenced to seven years in prison.

2. 'Karl Rove's IT guru' Mike Connell dies in
plane crash
for Raw Story

....The interest in Mike Connell stems from his association with a firm
called GovTech, which he had spun off from his own New Media
Communications under his wife Heather Connell’s name. GovTech
was hired by Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell to set up an
official election website at election.sos.state.oh.us to presented the
2004 presidential returns as they came in.

Connell is a long-time GOP operative, whose New Media
Communications provided web services for the Bush-Cheney ’04
campaign, the US Chamber of Commerce, the Republican National
Committee and many Republican candidates. This in itself might have
raised questions about his involvement in creating Ohio’s official state
election website.

...............................................................................................................3. One
of my sources died in a plane crash last night...
by Larisa Alexandrovna for At-Largely

I don't usually reveal sources, but I think this is incredibly important.
Michael Connell died in a plane crash last night. He was a key witness
in the Ohio election fraud case that I have been reporting on. More
importantly, however, he had information that he was ready to share.

You see, Mike Connell set-up the alternate email and communications
system for the White House. He was responsible for creating the
system that hosted the infamous GWB43.com accounts that Karl
Rove and others used. When asked by Congress to provide these
emails, the White House said that they were destroyed. But in reality,
what Connell is alleged to have done is move these files to other
servers after having allegedly scrubbed the files from all "known" Karl
Rove accounts.
