A very bad Roy Moore press event

November 22, 2017

The Roy Moore campaign held a press event on Tuesday afternoon.

It was dumb.

I could stop there and you would likely know all you need to know about that … I’m not sure what exactly took place on the capitol steps Tuesday afternoon. A lecture? A physical manifestation of a message board troll ranting?

It was something in that ballpark, and very little of it was helpful, informative or even bearable.

There are a lot of women out there who are my heroes. My wife, Veronica, is right at the top, no doubt.

Since last week’s column, where Veronica allowed me to share the two times she’s been sexually assaulted, we’ve heard from many people, including one reporter who is looking into the assault where a newspaper publisher spanked Veronica.

Another of my heroes is attorney Paula Cobia, who is representing Gloria Deason, one of the original four women who came forward in a Washington Post story accusing Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual assault and improper contact.

Dear America: An apology for Roy Moore, and all the rest

November 13, 2017

By Josh Moon
Alabama Political Reporter

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.

That seems to be the most pressing question on most people’s minds in the wake of Trump’s election last week.

Just what sort of president will Trump be? What will America look like during and after his presidency?

Holmes Makes More Headlines For Comments

April 15, 2014

By Brandon Moseley
Alabama Political Reporter

Perhaps the most memorable events of this legislative session has been politically incorrect comments by Rep. Alvin Holmes (D) from Montgomery.  Rep. Holmes attempted to clarify his position on marriage in a recent radio interview.  Rep. Holmes somehow managed to include a reference to man and mule marriage in his comments.

Rep. Holmes said, “Now, I’m for interracial marriage. I’m for same-sex marriage. I’m the one that introduced the bill to have same-sex marriage. I don’t care who marry who. If a man meet a little mule and he wanna get married to the little mule, as long as he and the little mule get along all right, that’s fine with me. It doesn’t bother me any kind of way.”
