There will be a showing of the a documentary alleging the federal prosecution of the state's last Democratic governor was the work of a Republican conspiracy.

"Atticus v. The Architect: The Political Assassination of Don Siegelman" will show at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Cobb Hollywood 16 theater at 4250 Old Greensboro Road. Tickets are $10.75 for adults and $7.75 for seniors.

The film was directed and produced by Steve Wimberly.

Siegelman was convicted in 2006 on federal bribery and obstruction of justice charges. He served a six-year prison sentence and a six-month home detention period that ended earlier this week.

Siegelman was convicted on charges that he sold a seat on a state regulatory board to HealthSouth founder Richard Scrushy in exchange for $500,000 in donations to his 1999 campaign to establish a state lottery. Siegelman was convicted on a separate obstruction of justice charge that he tried to hide money he received from a lobbyist.

The documentary lays out the allegations by Siegelman and supporters that the prosecution was a politically-motivated conspiracy led by GOP political adviser Karl Rove and which involved some of the top Republicans in the state who were upset by the Democrat’s political success.
