Dear America,

We’re sorry.

I’m speaking for all of us here in Alabama, even if some of these people will never apologize and never believe that they’ve done anything wrong.

The rest of us know better, though.

We know what we’ve done to all of America over the past year, when the Alabamization of this country began. You weren’t ready for it, and I told you last November that no amount of lowering expectations could possibly prepare you for the river of lunacy that was rushing towards you.

A former Huntsville Police Department officer turned small businessman, Steve Rousseau, is launching his candidacy for the Alabama House of Representatives in District 6.

“As a small businessman, I can bring a straightforward and no-nonsense approach to Montgomery. We are facing tough and trying times in Alabama, but there is much cause for optimism,” Rousseau said.

Rousseau also served as a range, twice received the police of the year award during his 10 years on the force and served as the president of the Huntsville fraternal order of police.

Staying Focused

April 20, 2017

By House Minority Leader Representative Anthony Daniels

It’s hard to believe so much has happened in the past week.

The former Governor’s resignation was long overdue. For months on end, the investigation of illegal conduct by the Governor and his administration caused a national embarrassment and an enormous distraction from the serious work of the people.

Unfortunately, the former Governor’s troubles are just part of a pattern of abuses by officials at the highest levels of power in our state. In only a year, the former House Speaker, the former Chief Justice of our Supreme Court and now the former Governor have fallen short of the standards of service in the public interest and adherence to the law.

What’s a convicted felon to do while out on bond?

If you’re the disgraced felon, and former Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard, you offer to be “the voice” of products and services.

Attorney General Reacts to Hubbard Loyalist’s Plans for Ethics Reform

MONTGOMERY—Alabama House Ethics Committee Chairman, Mike Ball (R-Madison), announced his plans (yesterday) to form a commission to review the state’s ethics laws. Ball, a staunch defender of convicted felon and former House Speaker, Mike Hubbard, told WHNT-TV in Huntsville that his committee would “review the State’s Ethics laws and recommend improvements in time for the opening of the Alabama Legislature next year.”

However, just hours after APR published its story on Ball’s plan, Attorney General Luther Strange, sent his comments.  “I am strongly opposed to Rep. Mike Ball’s idea of a commission to review Alabama’s ethics law. The whole point of such a commission would be to undermine the law,” said Strange.  “Alabamians want our ethics laws enforced, not gutted.”
