That’s a lot of counts and a lot of money

Prosecutors, in 101-count indictment, say Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford got more than $250,000 to steer county business to two political allies – Breaking News from The Birmingham News – al.com

Of course, everybody getting charged is an active member of the Alabama Democratic Party. Funny how that happens. And I don’t mean that the Democratic Party is corrupt…

Merry Christmas, Mayor Langford!

That’ll happen.

This has something to do with John Katopotis and county bond deals and free computers for children and who knows what else. The mayor’s office says that the whole thing came up because the eternally incompetent Alice Martin is on her way out with the new president coming in and wanted to get the indictments in now. Who knows, it might even be true.
