Bob Riley hates democracy

U.S. court asked to remove Jeffco commissioner appointed by Gov. Riley, let election proceed-

As well as, of course, Democrats. Anyway, a lawsuit has been filed by Fairfield resident Fred Plump (attorney: Ed Still — these are great names!) to get Riley’s appointee thrown out and an election called for. Again, there seems to be a great big precedent in that a Federal court already ruled that Riley couldn’t appoint a member to the Mobile County Commission when the previous officeholder was elected mayor of Mobile. Seems a 100 point match. That case has been appealed to the US Supreme Court, which will probably hand down its usual partisan decision of “whatever benefits the Republicans!”
