Mini-Moore Tom Parker Faces Ethics Issues

When in doubt in Alabama politics ... blame the ACLU, even if they aren't involved. This past January, Associate JusticeTom Parker wrote an opinion piece in the B'ham News after the Alabama Supreme Court reduced the death sentence of Renaldo Adams to Life Without Possibility of Parole. Does anyone else besides me and Michelle Pilecki think of "activist judge" given his actions? The Court appropriately followed the directives of the United States Supreme Court in the case of Roper vs. Simmons yet Judge Parker railed against "five liberal judges" that want to "turn us into another San Franciso". Would that they could! Imaginary battle with the ACLU per the B'ham News. Tom Parker is simply a straight wingnut and a testament to what Alabama voters are prone to elect. Scary times! Peace ... or War!
