JFC it's time to relegate Alabama. Maybe we can trade them to Mexico for something?

Mexico might not want Alabama if we gave it away

Yet more evidence of why we can't have nice things here:

Alabama House votes to end US Senate special elections

Republican Rep. Steve Clouse, the bill’s sponsor, said the special election cost the state more than $10 million.

“It has nothing to do with any of the personalities in that race. It has everything to do with the cost to the general fund,” said Clouse, of Ozark.
Shameful stuff, I'm sure we'd certainly be seeing this bill passed if Moore had won.

"Elections are expensive, we should not have them" is a hot take.

Hey man, republicans are just fiscally responsible. Dumbocrats are the ones who want to do pricy things like "hold elections" and "let people vote in them"

This seems dumb even for Alabama republicans. States dominated by one party are way more likely to elect governors of the opposite party then senators.

Do you have a source on this? I'm genuinely curious.

It's cute you think they wouldn't immediately go back to special elections if a Dem governor was elected.

Re: Alabama Special Election (Roy Moore diddles, GOP thumbs up, Mr. Jones goes to Washington)

if they wanted to save money on elections they could do a mail-in ballot. montana republicans shot down a proposition to switch to a mail-in ballot that would have saved their state millions because they believed it would raise voter turnout which does not benefit republicans so they decided it was best to spend the money to do it the old fashioned way

A potent force in the GOP's favor is holding off year elections so yeah, let's save money, every election is either in the mid-terms or with the Presidential general.

Didn't this kind of happen in North Carolina? Like, after a Democrat won the governor's seat the Republican legislature voted to restrict a bunch of executive powers?

Yet the Democrats will never learn. It's like the GOP is playing prisoner's dilemma with an Alzheimer patient.

I'm not a lawyer but that seems to at least violate the spirit of the 17th amendment. What is the legal definition of "temporary"?

Quote:
Roy Moore previously had a legal defense fund while refusing to move a monument of the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Judicial Building in Montgomery, despite a court order demanding he do so. That legal defense fund was later converted to the Foundation for Moral Law, which provided him more than a million dollars in compensation while the foundation employed multiple members of his family, including his wife as director.
That's some Paul-esque level grifting.
