Why Have Travel Restrictions been Placed on Governor Siegelman?

Tune in May 8th on The Thom Hartmann Program - Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman is here taking your calls (866) 303-2270. Since Gov. Siegelman is not allowed to travel, we'll be checking in with him from time to time so his case continues to get national attention.

Update: Governor Don Siegelman has been out of prison on bond for over a month and has given interviews to 60 Minutes on CBS, The Verdict on MSNBC, the New York Times, the House Judiciary Committee, the Tuscaloosa News, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on Ring of Fire and The Thom Hartmann Program. Now Travel restrictions have been imposed on him. Travel restrictions on a non-violent offender who has been deemed "not a flight risk" seems unusual.

Gov. Siegelman says, "If I'm not a flight risk, why would they be constricting my travel and making it very difficult if not impossible to leave the state?" he said. "There isn't but one conclusion, and that is that they don't want me speaking out on issues. They don't want me speaking to Congress or speaking to the media."
