Pelosi's Promise: She Tells Siegelman That Rove Is In Her Sights

Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman received encouraging news at last week's Democratic National Convention in Denver.

Greg Privett, of WHNT in Huntsville, reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Siegelman that she would lead an effort to hold former White House strategist Karl Rove in contempt of Congress.

Siegelman also heard about Rove from John Conyers, chair of the House Judiciary Committee. "We're not done with him yet," Conyers said.

Rove has refused to testify under oath about his possible involvement in Siegelman's prosecution on corruption-related charges.

Siegelman has established a Web site at ContemptforRove.com, encouraging citizens to pressure members of Congress for a contempt citation against Rove.

I truly hope and pray Speaker Pelosi keeps her word. Rove must not be allowed to thumb his nose at the U.S. Congress. We have citizens in our country not Kings or Queens.
