Call to Action: Don Siegelman Needs Our Help - Please Take Action Now

Hello Bloggers - I'm posting an email I received from Don Siegelman today because I think it's important and he requires our help. If you understood (so look into it) how much this good man was a victim of Karl Rove and the despicable Republican machine, then you would take a few moments to contact your congressional delegation on his behalf. We should not live in a nation, or a world, where good men like him go to jail because slime balls like Delay and Rove need to launder their money, cover their tracks, and hold onto power at all costs. Please take action! This is a very important cause to preserve our own justice and freedom!

Thursday's Call to Action #1 - Michael

Please Urge Your Representative to find Karl Rove in Contempt before Congress Adjourns in 2 Weeks!

Email your Member of Congress now!
Thousands of friends -- including you -- have already signed a petition, written, or called Congress, urging them to hold Karl Rove in contempt. Thank you so much for speaking out! Now that a U.S. District Judge has ruled that White House aides like Rove can't claim immunity in order to refuse to testify before Congress, there's no room for Karl Rove to hide any longer -- but our time is running out. If Congress adjourns at the end of September without holding Karl Rove in contempt, our chances at restoring democracy may very well be kaput. So now we must pull out all the stops and turn up the heat. That's why I'm asking you to call and write your Member of Congress again and urge the full House to vote to hold Karl Rove in contempt. It is time for Karl Rove to come clean and tell the truth about what he has done. If you speak out, and Congress votes contempt for Rove, he'll have to speak out too -- and for the first time, under oath!

There is sworn testimony by a Republican lawyer that Karl Rove targeted me when I was governor of Alabama through a malicious, unfounded, politically-motivated prosecution by the wife of Rove's best friend in Alabama. I was shackled, handcuffed, taken to a maximum security prison, and put into solitary confinement. I served 9 months in federal prison before the appeals court released me. We cannot let Karl Rove refuse to testify before Congress about his role in this nefarious scheme!That is why I need your help, once more, right now, in demanding that Karl Rove heed the call of Congress and a federal judge to finally testify.
Karl Rove has thumbed his nose in the face of Congress, refusing to answer questions about his abuse of power in launching politically motivated prosecutions and politicizing the Department of JusticeNow a federal judge has stripped Rove of his immunity claim! We don't have any time to lose. With only two more weeks left before Congress adjourns for the year, we need the House to act -- and act swiftly -- to force Karl Rove to show up and testify. If Rove really has nothing to hide, then he should prove it to Congress and the country. He shouldn't be ducking the Congressional subpoena.
Thank you so much for your continued friendship and support.

Don Siegelman
Governor of Alabama1999-2003

P.S. After you've emailed your Member of Congress, I hope you'll please forward this email to everyone you know. Help us build a groundswell of grassroots support calling on Congress to step up and hold Karl Rove accountable. We don't have much time left, so please do it right now!
