The President: 60 Minutes Report

PardonPower placed former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman (D) on the Presidential Pardon "Watch List" long ago and has updated the effort by his college-aged daughter to obtain a presidential pardon on his behalf (see The President: Siegelman and Scrushy?). Now, PardonPower readers can view a report on Siegelman's case broadcast last month on the ever-intriguing television program 60 Minutes. The general theme of the segment is "politics, politics, politics, Karl Rove, and politics." See complete video here (after a brief annoying commercial). There is a complete transcript of the segment as well.

The President: Siegelman and Scrushy?

The Daily 49er has an interesting article regarding two individuals on our Pardon Watch List. Don Siegelman, the former Democratic governor of Alabama, was found guilty in 2006 on seven counts of bribery, conspiracy and mail fraud. Richard M. Scrushy, a former CEO of the Birmingham, Ala.-based HealthSouth Corporation, paid off $500,000 in debts that Siegelman had accrued from his 1999 initiative to implement a state lottery and, in exchange, received a seat on a state hospital licensing board. Siegelman has almost seven years left to serve of his 88-month sentence. Scrushy is serving 82 months.
