Accusation: Rove Targeted Siegelman
The prosecution and conviction of former Alabama Governor Don Siegleman, a Democrat, is believed by many to be a hatchet job that sent Siegleman to prison based on trumped up charges orchestrated by the Republican Party. Adding fuel to that fire is this new revelation:
A Republican "opposition researcher" told CBS former White House aide Karl Rove asked her in 2001 to get compromising pictures of Alabama's Democratic governor. In an interview with "60 Minutes," Jill Simpson suggested there was a campaign to discredit Don Siegelman, the governor at the time who was eventually convicted of bribery. ...
"I haven't seen a case with this many red flags on it that pointed towards a real injustice being done," Grant Woods, a former Arizona attorney general of Arizona and a Republican, told "60 Minutes." "I personally believe that what happened here is that they targeted Don Siegelman because they could not beat him fair and square."
