Last Thanksgiving in Oakdale Federal Prison

Last Thanksgiving in Oakdale Federal Prison (hopefully) Don writes through Corrlinks to all who have stood by him all these years.

“Out of Solitary Confinement! Prison Official States: Never seen this happen before!” Released from Solitary! This weekend, without an explanation, former Alabama governor Don Siegelman was told that the charges against him for donating a t-shirt to support the documentary Atticus v The Architect – The Political Assassination of Don Siegelman were dropped and his record expunged, according to family sources. Don said he was not given a reason for the warden dropping the charges, and said that it even puzzled some of the prison officials, with one commenting, “I’ve never seen this happen before.” Don also said, “I want to thank Congresswoman Sewell for taking her recent leadership role […]
