This is potentially a HUGE story. This former gov, was getting ready to speak up about vote tampering /rigging being implicated to none-other than Karl Rove. He immediately had a bunch of spurious charges thrown at him by the 'justice' system, and his case was sent to a Judge that none other than DUBYA had nominated to federal judgeship in 2002!

Corruption at it's finest! And Congress wants to hear his testimony so bad they're releasing him under round the clock guard by U.S. Marshals to get him to Washington!

Will he make it? Or will he be 'suicided'?


The effort gained momentum after a Republican lawyer who had volunteered for Siegelman's re-election opponent — current Republican Gov. Bob Riley — said she overheard conversations suggesting that former White House adviser Karl Rove was talking with Justice officials about Siegelman's prosecution.
