Honestly, I didn’t expect Rep. John Rogers to answer his cell phone on Thursday night, and maybe him doing so should lessen my frustration with him.
But it doesn’t.
Because Rogers has started backtracking – on a story that I wrote, a story that he confirmed, a story that he told to multiple people. Rogers is telling people it’s not true.
The day before, I had multiple conversations with Rogers. Wednesday morning, a source told me an unbelievable tale involving the Birmingham Democrat. Rogers, the source said, was going to hold a joint press conference with Randy Brinson, a candidate for the US Senate, and say that he was offered a bribe related to the EPA’s North Birmingham superfund site.
