BREAKING: Don Siegelman Released On Bail Pending Appeal

Great news from the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals:
ATLANTA, Ga. -- The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has granted former Gov. Don Siegelman's request to be released from prison pending the outcome of his appeal.

Siegelman is currently serving a 7-year sentence in the Oakdale Federal Correctional Complex in Louisiana following his 2006 public corruption conviction.

Acting U.S. Attorney Louis Franklin confirms the 11th Circuit granted Siegelman's release in a fou- page order which states Siegelman had raised a "significant question" about his conviction. source

Let the celebrations begin.

And make sure they keep his cell in Louisiana open, so that Karl Rove can take it over as soon as possible.
