Richard ScrushyRichard Scrushy provides his first on-camera interview since serving six years in prison for allegedly bribing Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman. Scrushy told HuffPost Live why believes Siegelman is innocent and the victim of a political prosecution motivated by Karl Rove.

Ex-Alabama Governor Don Siegelman's daughter, Dana Siegelman and former Alabama Congressman, Parker Griffith joined HuffPost Live in December 2012 to discuss the political conflicts of interest and judicial misconduct that they claim played a role in the former governor's conviction on bribery and mail fraud charges.

"Karl Rove's hands are all over this," Griffith previously told HuffPost Live. "This is absolutely, one of the most unjust things I've ever encountered. The Karl Rove southern strategy is a racist strategy, it pits people against one another, it splits us apart and he was very successful in vetting judges."
