Don Siegleman received no help from Obama as Obama leaves the White House.

Don Siegleman's jailing just proves republicans are not above using the law as a political weapon and a tool of intimidation to silence anyone brave enough to attempt to speak out against the tyranny of the wealthy using elected officials as their personal weapons to commit treason and corrupt the US political system.

I've posted many blogs and OPs (Original Posts) about the Siegelman case for over 2 years on various websites, i(ncluding this one); asking people to sign petitions, contact the White House etc. to ask Obama to pardon Don Siegelman....with no luck whatsoever.

Did you know that in 2009, the Obama Justice Department requested that Judge Fuller INCREASE Siegelman's sentence by 20 more years?

At least Don Siegelman will be released soon...unlike Leonard Peltier, who's beed imprisoned for 40 years for a crime he probably didn't commit.

Obama refused to pardon Peltier, who is 71 now, and is very sick...He'll likely die in prison, despite the fact that the prosecutor in the case, James Reynolds, after 40 years, wrote a letter to Obama saying "the prosecution of Peltier was flawed" and asked for clemency for Peltier.....(Even the Vatican asked Obama to grant clemency for Peltier)

The Supreme Court Broke Politics - How Do We Now Reform the Supreme Court?

Thom plus logo We complain about the state of American politics; about a mentally ill billionaire in the White House and a Republican Party crawling with hustlers and conmen, and a few in the Democratic Party as well. The complaints are legitimate, but most people don't realize why the situation is as bad as it is.
