The Associated Press reports "some" of the supporters of Don Siegelman want President Obama to pardon him, so as to prevent the former Democratic Alabama governor from returning to prison. Siegelman was convicted of bribery in 2006, but is out of prison on an appeal bond. Former Democratic Party executive committee member Pam Miles is said to be "encouraging supporters to write Obama asking the president to pardon Siegelman." She says she "can't bear the thought' of Siegelman returning to prison. See story here.
