The three largest newspapers and the Internet site al.com in Alabama are all operated by Newhouse Publications which is owned by media giant Advance Publications, Inc. These newspapers literally print nothing but lies about all top Democrats in the state. They will not allow their investigative reporters any access to these cases. They did not investigate and didn't printed the truth about Don Siegelman. Most of the smaller locally owned newspapers have managed to spread the truth. They have done a remarkable job since this is a red state standing up to Bush's GOP operatives.

These three newspaper instruct their writers to start every article that they write about Siegelman with this statement, "Our newspapers endorsed Bob Riley and we believe Siegelman to be a crook" then they twist every sentence after that to sound negative.

Most Alabamians now know the truth about Don Siegelman and the conspiracy that removed this most popular Democrat in the history of Alabama from office using Bush's appointees financed by illegal laundried money.

Only 59% of the children in Alabama graduate from high school. Siegelman ran an education campaign that would have provided financial assistance to the education system and college schorlarships; however, GOP operatives ran prime time media smear ads which were endorced by Christian sham organizations, Congressman Bob Riley and Ralph Reed. This smear campaign along with the two that was used to defeat him in his reelection for governor were funded by lobbyists Jack Abramoff and Michael Scanlon who made the Choctaw Indians believe that Don Siegelman was a threat to Mississippi gambling and that if he was re-elected that he was going to pass laws that would free the Alabama Poarch Indians.

Thanks for the background, Norquist.

Don Siegelman sure struck a nerve down there. The education statistics you cite are shocking in the United States.

It sounds like Siegelman also went after some of the cozy relationships in the state's judiciary. That has come back to haunt him as well, no?
