Personal Responsibility: Who Needs It When You Can Blame Karl Rove?

December 02, 2008

Below is a fundraising letter sent out by Friends of Don Siegelman 2008. Despite that it has no basis in fact, I thought you might find it amusing. In case you're interested, visit these links for the facts.

Support Don's Legal Defense Fund today, before his December 9th appeal, and keep up the fight to hold Rove accountable and uncover the truth!

Dear XXX,

Since I wrote you last week, we have seen an outpouring of support from our online community in my effort to raise the $30,000 I need to pay legal expenses for my appeal on December 9th.

But, with less than one week left, I still need your help to reach that goal.

Please donate what you can today -- so I can have the resources I need to keep fighting back and to hold Karl Rove accountable!

Not only is my freedom at  stake, but so is the preservation of our democracy. If Karl Rove can  turn the powers of government against me and get away with it, it can happen to anybody.

Winning my appeal on December 9th is the first step in turning all this around and will give Congress more incentive to dig for the truth. We must stop the unchecked political prosecutions and election engineering that put me in prison and threaten the very base of our democracy. But I can't do it  alone.

Donate today -- and help take the Department of Justice back from political operatives like Karl Rove.

Exposing Rove's misuse of power within the Department of Justice is essential to protecting the future Americans voted for on November 4th and ensuring no one is ever subjected to the same politically motivated prosecution I endured ever again.

My Legal Defense Fund can accept contributions of any size from any source. Please give as much as you are comfortable with giving to help me meet my legal expenses.

Thank you again for your continued support. Rest assured I will keep fighting, one way or another, to ensure that Karl Rove is brought to justice once and for all.

Thank you and God bless,

Don Siegelman
Governor of Alabama
