By Bill Britt

MONTGOMERY—On Monday, the Alabama Foundation for Limited Government released a list of incumbent legislators and candidates who have taken the Anti-Corruption Pledge.

Founder, former Republican Sen. John Rice said, “The Alabama Foundation for Limited Government thanks them for sending a strong signal to the leadership in Montgomery that Alabamians are demanding the culture of corruption come to an end.”

Rice pointed out that many in top positions in the ALGOP and careerist politicians have refuged to sign the pledge, while new, eager candidates are signing up in droves.

“More than forty legislators and candidates have signed the Anti-Corruption Pledge since its launch on March 20…there is still time for candidates to show voters they mean to end business as usual in Montgomery.”

The organization says the Anti-Corruption Pledge is a comprehensive plan for ethics reform in State government that includes term limits, a ban on pay-to-play schemes, restrictions on gifts like football tickets and other reforms that will make State government more accountable and transparent.

The full list is below.
