Former Gov. Don Siegelman's daughter has created a petition on the Internet that asks President Barack Obama to grant him clemency.
Dana Siegelman's petition says her father was wrongfully convicted on government corruption charges, and it asks the president to restore justice. She has already received more than 1,200 signatures.
Siegelman's daughter created the petition after a federal judge re-sentenced him a week ago.
U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller sentenced Siegelman to six and one-half years in prison, but he will get credit for nine months already served.
The petition is hosted on Change.org. A link is provided below.
