Ain't that (Bush's) America...

Scary stuff: C & L reports on the latest in the Don Siegelman case --

As 60 Minutes was putting its show together, the White House put pressure on CBS to kill the show. Over the last few days, as word got out that the show would air, Karl Rove’s associates began planting defamatory stories about journalists working on this story (see example here) and attacking the whistle-blower who came forward, Dana Jill Simpson. If you recall, Ms. Simpson testified, under oath, to Congress about Karl Rove’s involvement in politicizing the DOJ. What you may not know, however, is that her house mysteriously caught fire and she was run off the road in the weeks leading up to her testimony.

What you may also not know is that Governor Siegelman’s house was broken into twice during his trial as was his attorney’s office.

Yesterday, the attacks on Simpson and journalists increased with a series of emails from the Alabama GOP. See Here.
