DemocracyNow.org - Don Siegelman, the former governor of Alabama, returns to federal prison today to resume his six-and-a-half-year sentence on a controversial bribery conviction that has been compared to a political witch hunt. Siegelman and his supporters say he was the target of a plot, in part orchestrated by former Bush administration deputy Karl Rove, for belonging to the Democratic Party in a state with a Republican majority. Siegelman has already served over nine months in prison, one month in solitary confinement, and three weeks in a maximum-security prison. Hours before he reports back to prison to resume his sentence, Siegelman joins us from a hotel room in New Orleans.
