"Thank you for helping free my dad! Do you have ideas for making this an even bigger story before inauguration?
Joseph and I were finally able to talk to a producer from 60 Minutes, but he politely told us to look elsewhere.
Please help us reach your favorite news anchor/team/network. Jon Stewart's producer is Hillary Kun and may be reached at (212) 468-1700 or firstname.lastname@example.org! =)
So far we have 39,000 signatures on the petition. Please help us reach 100k by December 25th by encouraging at least one person a day to sign!
To pitch the story, remind producers politely: Don Siegelman is now back in prison for another five years and nine months for something that has never been a crime in America. The New York Times, The Washington Post, Fox Business News, MSNBC, CBS, Harper's, Time Magazine, The American Trial Lawyers, Huffington Post, The Guardian, 113 former state Attorneys General, top Constitutional Law Professors, and many others say this case is erroneous!
Recently, Congressman Parker Griffith, Republican from the 5th congressional district of Alabama said on Lila Garrett's Connect the Dots, "This was a political assassination of one of the finest governors we've ever had in the South....he was shackled...he was put in solitary confinement...this judge was trying to prove to the Karl Rove faction that he could carry out an assignment." We have to free Don Siegelman!
If you have media contacts, now is the time to reach out to them. If you have a show that you feel is appropriate for this case, please email me with as much information as possible and I will pursue it. I cannot do this alone!
We still hope to get professional help, so if you would like to donate toward the publicity effort, you can do so here.
Thank you so much!!
