We've had Morgan County judges who did not follow the rules themselves.
Still later, we had a judge violate every law in Alabama to marry two people of the same sex, doing it to "uphold the law." By violating it.
We have had two sheriffs taking prisoner food money for themselves.
We have two judges retiring who accepted lies in their court to damage me, apparently because I point out these things. That these things are true seems to be irrelevant to them. They are being replaced by two judges who came from the same pond as those leaving.
We had an interesting election though. Everything said by one candidate about the other was true, yet he lost. He lost because he he let his sponsoring special interest group get on TV and boast of their power. They wasted their money for their own stupidity. The people of Alabama are highly suspicious of special interest groups.
Another race, a kindly old lady stomped on her opponent. He said the minute he took office he was going to push through a gambling bill. The people of Alabama have strong reservations about the benefits of gambling. Alabama does not like politicians stuffing their pockets, and they are suspicious of back room deals and secret agendas.
We need to drain the swamp, and the swamp is the political system that produces these kinds of candidates. How do we drain that?
