    Whistleblower Tamara Grimes


    ..We are descendants of great men and women who believed in
    this great nation, who gave their lives to secure freedom, life,
    liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Two years ago, I would
    have been confident that these things could not happen in the
    United States of America. These events occurred under the
    watch of two presidents and three attorneys general. This is a
    civil rights issue. The selective prosecutions in Montgomery,
    Alabama have far reaching implications for every citizen of the
    United States. A legal precedent has been set, a precedent that
    significantly abridges the civil rights and civil liberties
    guaranteed to every citizen of the United States by the U.S.
    Constitution.Today I passed the civil rights memorial at the
    Southern Poverty Law Center here in Montgomery, Alabama.

    The memorial is dedicated to the memory and achievements of
    those who gave their lives to advance civil rights in this country.
    It is breathtaking to behold the glistening water, softly flowing
    over an ebony stone upon which is inscribed, "until justice rolls
    down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream."

was fired from her job.
"I have always considered myself to
be a moderate Republican,” she
said. “I believe in the U.S.
Constitution, and that what
happened in Montgomery with the
Siegelman/Scrushy prosecution is
a travesty of justice."
