I am not a staunch Republican or Democrat. Lately, candidates switch parties so often it’s hard to keep up, but in the 2010 election, Republicans took control of the House and Senate. Is Alabama better off four years later? That’s debatable.

One thing for sure is that the Republicans, like the Democrats, have had their share of questionable behavior. The Speaker of the House is under investigation by a grand jury, one legislator has been indicted for ethics violations, and one representative has been indicted for lying.

It’s sad that Alabama doesn’t care if our state legislators are corrupt as long as they are Republican.
