1. Restore Justice At Justice Coalition Calls
on Attorney General Eric Holder to Dismiss
Charges Against Don Siegelman  
PRNewswire-USNewswire

The Restore Justice At Justice campaign, www.restorejusticeatjustice.
com, representing hundreds of organizations with over one million
members, calls on Attorney General Eric Holder to immediately
dismiss criminal charges against former Alabama Governor Don
Siegelman in light of the latest astounding evidence filed in his case
attesting to gross violations of the rule of law by federal prosecutors.
Specifically, the government's chief witness in the case, Nick Bailey,
has sworn in an affidavit that prosecutors told him what to say, made
him repeat it until he got it right, threatened him if he did not say it,
and lied to the federal judge presiding over the case about his
testimony. Moreover, Mr. Bailey attested that government prosecutors
intentionally withheld evidence and told him to hide a three ring binder
with all of his copious notes of meetings with government agents and
officials.

Mr. Bailey has provided that binder to his attorney who has shared
much of it with Mr. Siegelman's attorneys to support the affidavit. Mr.
Bailey's associate and a professional legal investigator also provided
affidavits supporting these assertions.

3. Why Did the 11th Circuit Cheat Don
Siegelman? Here Is My Guess
by Roger Schuler for Legal Schnauzer

....Our best guess? Montgomery, Alabama, could be described as the
"base camp" for Republican corruption during the George W. Bush
administration--and going back even further, at least to the mid
1990s. An honest ruling by the 11th Circuit would have focused
attention on trial judge Mark Fuller, U.S. Attorney Leura Canary, and
their home base of Montgomery. The 11th Circuit, which is dominated
by Republican appointees, clearly did not want that.

What we have, in our estimation, is an attempted judicial coverup. And
it seems unlikely that the 11th Circuit acted in a vacuum. The court's
bogus ruling probably was the result of significant external
interference, meaning our federal courts are more poisoned and
politicized than many of us can imagine.
