The wireless signal works in the lobby but not in the meeting room, which is packed with Todd supporters. We’re just about ready for the appeal of Patricia’s disqualification. I think it will be 30 to 45 minutes. They have to finish the Greene County sheriff’s race appeal first.
I had a tip from Kyle Whitmire of the Birmingham Weekly that the committee is “throwing Gaynell [Hendricks] under the bus”. It appears they are planning to nominate George Perdue, who currently holds the District 54 seat but was planning to retire at the end of his term. If that happens, I guess the next stop is court.
Joe Reed managed to get Gaynell’s attorney elected to the SDEC this morning, so that’s one more vote in her favor. Chris Englund was elected to be the nominee in District 70 (?) Tuscaloosa, a loss for Joe Reed who doesn’t like Chris’s dad.
More as it happens.
