Don Siegelman is the former Governor of Alabama, as well as the Lt. Governor, Attorney General and Secretary of State - an extremely popular Democrat in a deep red state. Since certain rogue Republicans could not beat him fairly through the election process, a cadre of corrupt national and local GOP operatives put on a show trial and convicted him for "bribery." The acts for which they convicted him are commonly & openly performed by politicians - including President Obama and President elect Trump - everyday. However, Don Siegelman served as "America's # One Political Prisoner" in the Federal Bureau of Prison until February 8, 2017 when he was released to home confinement through the Early Release program. He will be on probation until 8.9.2020.
