This can’t all be real

Lipscomb mayor’s 1994 burglary conviction eyed- al.com

I mean, what is the deal with Lipscomb?

Apparently, “Simon Speight” pled guilty to felony burglary in a Birmingham court in 1994. “Simon Speights” is the mayor of Lipscomb. They have the same address and from all appearances are the same person. At other times, he has used the last name “Steight”. In the phone book, he’s listed as “Samon Speights”. Felons can’t vote in Alabama and you must be a registered voter to hold elective office. (Full disclosure: I know Speights’ lawyer from the burglary conviction.)
