Our film will reveal the dark underbelly of Republican politics. It will explain how Karl Rove used his position in the Bush White House to “get rid of Siegelman” because Republicans simply couldn't beat him at the polls. Rove arranged for loyal Republican operatives (who also happened to be Siegelman’s political adversaries) to be appointed as federal prosecutors. Those prosecutors indicted Siegelman with false charges, charges which alleged actions that, according to hundreds of legal experts – both Republican and Democrat – have never been crimes in the history of American jurisprudence. Then, to guarantee that those false charges would stick, Rove arranged for a Republican activist “hanging judge" to preside over the trial. Inside this biased courtroom, Rove’s henchmen got away with a staggering judicial misconduct. Today Don Siegelman sits in prison, with his career, family, and finances devastated.
We invite you to be a part of this journey to bring integrity and the objective rule of law back to our judicial system!
