MONTGOMERY — Attorney General Steve Marshall has declined to issue an opinion on Gov. Robert Bentley’s Senate special election date — a request of State Auditor Jim Zeigler, an outspoken critic of the Governor.
Earlier this month, Zeigler requested an Attorney General’s Opinion on Bentley’s special election schedule. Marshall declined Zeigler’s request because he said the scheduling does not directly relate to Zeigler’s office.
