It’s funny to me who we shun in Alabama.

That thought crossed my mind Tuesday afternoon as I watched a bunch of the shunned hold a rally on the Capitol steps to speak out against Roy Moore — one of the biggest shunners on the planet.

Tuesday, June 21, 2016, defense attorneys for Chief Justice Roy Moore (R) filed a motion asking the Court of the Judiciary (COJ) to dismiss the charges against the Chief Justice.

The JIC apparently wanted the Chief Justice to openly disobey the Alabama Supreme Court and to take matters into his own hands. The JIC’s position is astounding and clearly wrong.

MONTGOMERY— At a media-packed press conference on Wednesday, Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore and his attorneys, called upon the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission (“JIC”) to dismiss unfounded and politically motivated complaints filed against him by the Southern Poverty Law Center (“SPLC”), People for the American Way, the Human Rights Campaign, Ambrosia Starling, and others.

Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, said the complaints filed against Chief Justice Moore were not about ethical misconduct, but instead, were an attack on his statements and administrative orders about the legal status of Alabama’s Sanctity of Marriage laws.
