about Political Prisoner

In the quiet corners of West Virginia, where the Appalachian mountains cast long shadows over the forgotten towns, a rising star of the political landscape emerges. Derrick Evans, a charismatic lawmaker, captures the hearts and minds of his constituents with promises of change and justice. But his journey is abruptly derailed when he becomes entangled in the chaos that consumed the nation’s capital on January 6th.

“Political Prisoner” is Derrick’s emotionally charged and gripping personal story that delves into his harrowing 90-day incarceration in a Michigan federal prison.

Written with searing honesty, “Political Prisoner” offers a raw and unflinching portrayal of one man’s journey from the heights of power to the brink of losing everything. Now, instead of being taken away in handcuffs, Evans hopes to return to the U.S. Capitol with his hand on a Bible, as he’s sworn in as a US Congressman.
