Hey Pols! Hey Pols!
We just arrested the hell outta you!
Rammer Jammer, in the slammer,
Give ‘em hell Alabama!
Yesterday, FBI agents arrested 11 people indicted for their involvement in a scheme to buy and sell votes in the Alabama legislature to get new pro-gambling laws passed. Among those arrested were four state senators, Larry Means (Democrat), Jim Preuitt (Republican), Quinton Ross Jr. (Democrat), and Harri Anne Smith (Independent). At least we finally got some bipartisanship in the state government! Here’s the indictment, and you can watch a press conference about the arrests below.
And, just to make Alabama politics even a little more retarded, Ron Sparks, the Democrat candidate for Governor recently released this ad, attacking the tax policies of the Republican candidate, Robert Bentley:
You heard it right. Robert Bentley is being criticized for trying to increase state revenues by enforcing existing tax laws. Ron Sparks has taken the bizarre position of defending tax cheats. Roll Tide y’all.
