subpoena

Karl Rove caught subpoena'd on camera: Not news, film not at 11, why not?!

The sorry-ass state of shareholder value-captured media, just perhaps!?

From yesterday's OpEdNews

Imagine the look of contempt on Karl Rove's face this past Sunday as he swaggered toward his star turn on CBS's Face the Nation only to be served with our subpoena sanctioned by the Secretary of the State of Ohio.
The federal subpoena orders Rove to testify in deposition. Our attorney, Cliff Arnebeck, intends to ask Mr. Rove about his role in the theft if the 2004 election, and to discuss his orchestration of tens of millions of corporate/billionaire dollars in the one coming up on November 2, 2010.

Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman wants your help

Karl Rove has an appointment with the House Judiciary Committee next week and has made no indications, yet, as to how he'll respond, or delay. But Chairman John Conyers' press release of January 26 says, "It’s Time to Talk" about his role in the Bush administration’s politicization of the Department of Justice, including the U.S. attorney firings and the prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.

What may be the beginning of an accounting for what happened under eight years of 'leadership' by the Bush Administration, and how, should examine Karl Rove's role in forcing policy and hiring by the DOJ through the corrupting filter of a White House political agenda.

The rule of law is one of the implicit exports made in military adventures to Iraq and Afghanistan and under a banner of 'freedom, liberty, and justice'. The background to the story of former AL Governor Don Siegelman seems to argue that it was a wholesale transfer and he's seeking your help to reverse that process. For the background, see the sidebar links in his QUICK START page for the case and I'd also recommend RawStory's investigative series, "The permanent Republican majority".

We'll have more on this but, for now, Don Siegelman's asking for help. As Chmn, Conyers has said, "Change has come to Washington" and Americans aspire to reclaim freedom, liberty, and justice as our guiding light.

It begins at home, doesn't it?

Help Don Siegelman regain his own freedom and join 52 Attorneys General of both parties who want his political prosecution investigated.
