BREAKING: Don Siegelman To Be Released Pending Appeal

(h/t Bradblog)

This is great news:

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has granted former Gov. Don Siegelman's request to be released from prison pending the outcome of his appeal.

Siegelman is currently serving a 7-year sentence in the Oakdale Federal Correctional Complex in Louisiana following his 2006 public corruption conviction.

Acting U.S. Attorney Louis Franklin confirms the 11th Circuit granted Siegelman's release in a four- page order which states Siegelman had raised a "significant question" about his conviction.

For those of you who don't know Don Siegelman's tragic and infuriating story, you can brush up here. The Politico is calling it a "victory for the blogosphere." Check out the article for the full press release.

Siegelman is going to testify before Congress on the matter soon. Hopefully they can get to the bottom of exactly what this man was put through.

And remember, "all roads lead to Rove."
