1. DoJ Attack On Siegelman's Rights
Threatens Election Rights For All
by Andrew Kreig for the Huffington Post

....New evidence since Siegelman’s 2006 trial includes claims of
judicial bias and corruption, plus DoJ political prosecution
orchestrated by Rove,  judge-shopping, jury tampering, failing to
comply with prosecutor recusal, firing a DoJ whistleblower, and
suppressing evidence that DoJ tried to blackmail its central witness
against Siegelman with a sex scandal.

Also, 75 former state attorneys general ─ the chief law enforcers from
more than 40 states ─ made a bipartisan filing that is unprecedented
in U.S. legal history to argue that Siegelman committed no crime by
appointing a donor to a state post.  

....Most of those accused of framing Siegelman deny claims by the
defense, whistleblowers and investigative reporters.  But none of the
denials have been in public under oath and subject to cross-
examination.  Some have been comments to the press, and many
others have been in affidavits that can avoid key issues.  

Rove and Harriet Miers, the highest-ranking of the Bush White House
advisors accused of improperly interfering at DoJ, were interviewed in
private this summer by House Judiciary Committee staff and a
Congressman from each party.  But the interview rules did not require
an oath.
