Today’s guest, Roger Shuler delivers a tour de force expose of Karl Rove’s political assassination of Democratic high flyer, Don Siegelman, former Alabama Governor. Shuler shows the tentacles of corruption that have pervaded the take down of a major Star in Democrat Politics, once lauded as Vice Presidential timber for Al Gore. Shuler presents an extraordinary saga of judicial corruption– with pay offs galore to the Judge, the Prosecutor & Attorney General who orchestrated the political assassination of one of Alabama’s True Statesmen.
Think that’s overstated? Check out this interview. Listen how Alabama Attorney General Pryor got appointed to the 11th Circuit Appellate Court, leapfrogging to the highest court under the Supreme Court despite no previous experience as a Judge, not even in traffic court. Or how the original Judge Fuller received millions in private payments to his corporation for military contracts. Or how the State Prosecutor worked for Don Siegelman’s opponent during his re-election campaign. Shuler’s own case demonstrates the pervasive corruption that’s rotted Alabama’s good ole boy judicial system. Shuler makes a clear case that it all emanates from the criminal mind of Karl Rove, star player in Bush politics. Everyone considering Jeb Bush in 2016 had better know this story. Over 100 current & former State Attorney Generals, GOP and Democratic alike, have appealed to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to vacate Siegelman’s sentence and send this Good Man, this Fine Man home from prison to his family! In truth, nationally, the Siegelman case is recognized as an atrocious abuse of the judicial process!
