You know how I feel about this travesty. We should all be taking this very seriously in my opinion. I'm now going to post Dana's message without further comment.

It has been a month since Karl Rove embarrassed himself on national television. Why was everyone so excited about that? Because half of us thought he might steal the election!

Both parties have become familiar with Rove's abuse of power as Chief of Staff, his propagandized lies, his "secret" corporate loyalties, and his frightening power over the GOP. Now he has slipped under the radar while attention turns to the fiscal cliff, which he certainly helped create. Our Democratic leadership, in their usually forward-looking manner, are understandably distracted by current challenges.

However, part of looking forward is to right wrongs and hold those accountable who have subverted our country's system of justice. Having the truth come out in thirty years does nothing to resolve our fragile court system now. Let's make it thirty days for Dad.

I tried calling the White House and found that the comment line is like a pat on the back. When I called Vice-President Joe Biden's office, it was like a hug! They made me spell Dad's name and asked for my contact information. Then they promised to pass the message along. Could you take a minute before 5pm EST to call the Vice-President and ask him to go to the President to pardon Don Siegelman? The number is 202-224-2424. Don't forget to be nice!!! =)

As Dad has said, "If we stop protecting our rights, our rights will stop protecting us." In fact, it is empowering to stand up for one's rights. Your concern will be heard and desire for justice will be felt.

Write Dad in Prison

"That Rove's fingerprints are all over this case has not so much been disputed, but rather ignored by the media and mainstream outlets, as Siegelman faces an unrepentant federal judge in Alabama who will not let Siegelman's case be resolved. After a dozen years and a fortune in legal fees, Siegelman's only hope lies now with a pardon from President Barack Obama, who has largely avoided taking on Rove's legacy of misdeeds."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
