Gene Church won one battle in Montgomery. He never should have had to win two. #larrystutts   #roseslaw  
Sixteen years ago, Gene Church got Rose's Law, named for his late wife, through the Montgomery statehouse. Now her OB/GYN, Sen. Larry Stutts, is trying to repeal that law.

Every time a UAB football player got his bell rung last season, he sacrificed something for the university that it probably didn't deserve. #uab   #uabfootball   #football   #raywatts   #freeuab   #fireraywatts  
Every time a player got his bell rung this season on the field, he sacrificed something for UAB that the university probably didn't deserve.

The correct response to a public records request is not "go to hell." #Birmingham   #birminghamwaterworksboard   #BWWB   #jabowaggoner   #rodgersmitherman   #alabamalegislature   #alabama  
The Birmingham Water Works Board's dysfunction has become a malfunction the Alabama Legislature must fix, even if it jeopardizes the rest of the session.

It takes a lot to offend me. It takes a whole lot more to shock me like this guy just did. #larrystutts   #alabama   #legislator   #senate   #roseslaw  #obgyn
If political malpractice was a crime, state Sen. Larry Stutts would be guilty.

See who got what and how much. #alabama   #paydayloans   #titleloans   #obama  
Payday and title lenders have plied select Alabama lawmakers with campaign cash, and they've gotten their money's worth.

Which "American" jobs is Jeff Sessions trying to protect? Austal? Airbus? Mercedes? Honda? Hyundai? BBVA Compass? His message to the world is clear: You can bring your business to American, but leave your people at home. #JeffSessions   #alabama   #mercedes   #hyundai   #honda   #airbus   #austal   #bbvacompass   #Facebook   #markzuckerberg   #immigrationreform  
In flap with Facebook CEO, Sessions' message to foreigners is clear: You can bring your jobs to America, but leave your people at home.

The Watts/UA Trustees PR offensive has failed. And Gov. Bentley? He's just being offensive. 
Rep. Jack Williams demands an apology from Gov. Bentley, while poll shows Watts and trustees' PR campaign has failed.
