It's a story that has, barely, bubbled up on the radar.
If you haven't been concerned and frightened about the Bush Grindhouse by now (and about your only excuse is if you suffered a serious head injury, or, perhaps, have been a victim of their Extraordinary Rendition, and your memory is now mush), the painstaking, digging, hard work of Larisa Alexandrovna (and Muriel Kane) of Raw Story (and her own blog, at-Largely) should help throw the light switch over your head.
It's a detailed rundown on the persecution and prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman (the only person in the history of Alabama to be elected to serve in all four of the top statewide offices: Secretary of State, Attorney General, Lieutenant Governor and Governor), at the hands of the GOP/RNC, led by Karl Rove and his cronies.
We haven't typically associated the phrase "political prisoner" with an American citizen - inside of America - yet, you can't think otherwise after reading Alexandrovna's articles.
It's compelling - and scary - stuff.
And, if you are keeping a scorecard, for the day our Congress (LOL) actually takes action and holds the Bush Regime accountable, pen these in the line-up for a turn in the batters box.
