Speaking of votes that didn’t matter

Bell wins District 1 race – Breaking News from The Birmingham News – al.com

The election for Crazy Larry’s old seat on the Jefferson County Commission was today, and William Bell, frequently unemployed member of the Birmingham City Council, has won. This may not matter, because Bob Riley says that the guy he appointed is the real commissioner, and “Troy King” agrees, and they’re appealing to a federal government controlled by other partisan Republicans. Elections just mess things up. Oh, and then we’ll have to deal with the people running for Bell’s seat on the Council, presumably. It’s the Larry Langford Domino Theory!

  2. The law is rather nebulous on the matter of replacing a Jefferson County Commissioner. While I agree that the voters should select a replacement, I am glad that this matter is working through the court system. Hopefully, the Jefferson County legislative delegation will come together on a solution.
