Are we rubes who cannot read nor count?

November 27, 2017

By Bill Britt
Alabama Political Reporter

National opinion writers, network talking heads and even random strangers are slamming Alabama as a clannish bunch of backwoods, inbred rubes simply too dumb to determine who to elect as U.S. Senator on December 12. And even here at home, much of the same criticism is amplified in print, online and even in these pages.

At the Alabama Political Reporter, we allow all voices with few exceptions, but our primary focus is on accuracy in reporting.

May 25, 2017

By Rep. Craig Ford

It would be easy to think nothing good has happened lately in the world of Alabama politics, and that Montgomery is so mired in corruption and bickering that nothing ever gets done.

After all, the Legislative Session that just ended began with one governor and ended with a different one; tensions over Legislative redistricting and a controversial email slowed its final days to a crawl; and important issues that were left unfinished will most likely lead to a costly Special Session.

Top Democrats Continue Public Feud

Alabama House Minority Leader Craig Ford (D-Gadsden) has made waves in Alabama political circles by calling for the Chairwoman of the Alabama Democratic Party, Nancy Worley, and the head of the Alabama Democratic Conference, Joe Reed, to step down.

Thursday, October 27, 2016, the Chair of the Alabama Democratic Reform Caucus (ADRC), Sheila Degan Gilbert, wrote in a statement, “Recent comments by State Representative Craig Ford (D-Gadsden) have again brought forth the need for a more energetic Alabama Democratic Party.

The Speaker of the State House of Representatives and the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court no longer hold office. The Governor is being investigated. Yet our State Democratic Party has been almost silent.”
