 Don Seigleman,former governor of Alabama, is in prison. American television show 60 Minutes did a segment on the trial, claiming that a Republican Justice Department was determined to indict Siegleman for being the only successful long-standing Democratic politician in a decidedly Republican state.

Over fifty former State Attourneys General have asked Congress to review the case.

The following 60 Minutes segment appeared without interruption throughout most of the country, apart from parts of Alabama, where the segment appeared to have been censored. The company responsible is claiming that the interruption was an electrical fault.
