Siegelman response:

Dear Melissa,

Let’s keep up the fight.  Please contribute to my legal defense fund today!

The three judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has just ruled. While they threw out two counts of my politically-motivated prosecution and conviction, they upheld several others and have sent the case back to the district court for re-sentencing.

I am disappointed, but not discouraged. The fight will continue.

My family and I are deeply appreciative of the outpouring of support and prayers. Your words and actions keep our spirits lifted and our resolve strong. We will get through this, and we will win.

Sincerely,

Don Siegelman
Governor of Alabama 1999-2003
