You may enter politics clean and with good intentions, but I guarantee no one ever leaves that way.

If they disassociate from Oliver, they need to disassociate from Jack Williams too.

RE: Eh tu, Oliver?
Politics is often described as "the art of the possible". Most politicians are former business persons who were encouraged by friends and others to run for office. Therefore, the "average politician" is just as honest as the "average business person" they were before entering politics. The present President of the USA is an example of this at work.

Alabama may be a special case because our state's voters have always supported those who are known to be less than virtuously honest. No other state has had the top leader of each of the 3 branches of our state government removed from office for wrongdoing in office at the same time -- and one has announced his candidacy for the US Senate seat.

So true. I put the blame for all this on the AEA.

It is proof of the real political strength of AEA that it is the only professional organization Alabama's politicians dare to attack while passing SETF budgets for 2018 still $400 million less than was passed in 2007.

...Bottom line from the U.S. Attorney: Oliver Robinson is going to jail, and rear ends at Balch & Drummond ought to be tighter than a tin drum.
...If I were Oliver Robinson I'd be asking for witness protection.
