Fundraiser held for legal fund of former governor Siegelman - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

Fundraiser held for legal fund of former governor Siegelman

Don Siegelman made a visit to Huntsville Sunday where local democrats are asking for contributions to help the former Alabama governor with his legal defense fund.

Siegelman owes $2.5 million in legal costs accrued during his government corruption trial. In 2006, Siegelman was convicted of bribery, obstruction and other related charges.

The event was intended to raise money and get other's to take action with our legislature.

Siegelman brought up Karl rove, whom he believes encouraged his prosecution.

"Call bud Cramer to go to www.contemptforrove.com. Send an email message and ask your member of congress and other members of congress to vote this week to hold Karl Rove in contempt."

Organizers tell us they met their goal of $5,000. Crossroads will hold another Siegelman fundraiser October 18.
