Gov. Siegelman is a Dem political prisoner imprisoned by the Reps for offering same nonpaying job to same individual as 2 previous governors.
From Dana Siegelman:
"Thanks to you, people like Martin Sheen, Mimi Kennedy, and Ski Johnson have signed the petition and now The Daily Show is considering the story!
Next on the wish list is MSNBC! Can you help me call producers? Just remember, they are on our side, and it helps to be nice! =)
They can cover the story from several angles:
-- Human interest (Siegelman's daughter fights for father's freedom)
-- Tis the Season of Compassion and Presidential pardons; who will President Obama pardon?
-- 112 Attorneys General, Top Constitutional Law scholars, and other notables call on President Obama to grant Don Siegelman clemency
-- Republicans want Rove out, Democrats want Don out!
-- Congressman Parker Griffith (AL) speaking out, joins growing list of Republicans in support of Siegelman's freedom. Have him on the show and ask him why!

For those of you with energy left...
Please call the ACLU and ask them to get involved in helping my father. They can send out an email blast asking people to sign the petition! 212-549-2500
In fact, any organization that focuses on issues of democracy, justice, human and civil rights should be advocating for the release of Don Siegelman!
Please continue emailing me with ideas, suggestions, connections and consider donating toward us having a professional communications director! Thanks so much for everything you are doing to free my dad.
