At last, Don Siegelman will have his day in court (Let’s help him beat Karl Rove!)

Dear Friend,
Next Wednesday, January 19, is a critical day in our fight for justice against my Karl Rove inspired prosecution — a political prosecution ginned up by Rove to target me and criminalize the kind of political activity that happens every day, in every state, all across the country.
On Wednesday, I’ll be appearing in front of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Jacksonville, Florida, asking them to overturn my flawed conviction — once and for all.

We’re so close to a huge victory. But keeping up this fight takes resources, and with my legal defense fund nearly exhausted, I’m sending you an urgent appeal at this critical time.

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your help and support as I continue to fight for my freedom — and, together, as we fight for justice across our country. Some amazing things have happened over these last few years because we believed and kept up the fight.
Your activism made me the “poster child” of selective political prosecution, shining a spotlight on the egregious wrongdoing and quest for political vengeance that had overtaken the Department of Justice under Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez — at the behest of Karl Rove.
Your activism also led the House Judiciary Committee to hold Rove in contempt — twice — and conduct an investigation that showed that the United States was using torture as a means of interrogation.
But we still have work to do, and I need your support to keep fighting in this legal battle for my freedom. If we don’t prevail in Jacksonville, I will face re-sentencing immediately after the 11th Circuit rules — likely facing the same judge who had me handcuffed and shackled and put into solitary confinement in a maximum security prison.
There’s simply too much at stake — for me and for our entire system of justice — to stop fighting now.

In this new year, I ask you to renew your quest for peace, love, and justice, and to believe that if we keep working for peace and justice, that love will come. Help me keep the fight going.
God bless you for what you do and have done — and for standing with me at this critical time.
