Maybe you’ve seen the billboards.

There are 18 of them around Alabama, mostly concentrated in Montgomery and south Alabama. On them, in giant letters, is the word “EXPOSED!”

Just underneath are three photos: former Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange, former Gov. Bob Riley and former U.S. attorney Leura Canary.
