Smells like Florida, smells like Ohio, smells like Rove

Don Siegelman is a former Alabama governor who could be called a political prisoner. An early opponent of then governor George Bush's run for President, Siegelman lost his own re-election during an illegal Republican recount of votes in a single county.

Subsequently, Siegelman was prosecuted by a former Republican political rival connected to Karl Rove, and is now held in jail, incommunicado while his appeal is being prepared (but unable to be prepared because bureaucrats have help up the assembling of his trial transcripts.)

It can't happen here, eh.
