Wednesday, former U.S. Attorney Alice Martin (R) sent out an email announcing her plans if elected as attorney general.

“I have been traveling around the state meeting and talking with many Alabamians who are resonating with my message about why I am running as Attorney General. The AG quite simply ‘guards’ the rule of law and your safety,” Martin said.

Martin said that she would guard, “Your constitutional freedoms from assault by the left liberals or guarding against federal overreach, the prison doors and ensuring local convictions obtained by your DA are upheld on appeals & criminals serve their time, your tax dollars from wasteful spending and corrupt officials, your personal identity from computer hacks and the sanctuary of your home against domestic violence.”

U.S. Representative Martha Roby (Rt from Montgomery) spoke out on the issue of domestic violence on Tuesday, September 16. Roby said that tolerating abuse indirectly condones the crime and inhibits victims’ willingness to seek help.

Rep. Roby said, “As a society, we cannot tolerate domestic violence. When abusers are not held accountable, it serves to indirectly condone the crime and has a chilling effect on victims. Almost one in every three women has experienced physical violence at the hands of their partner, according to The Centers for Disease Control.
