RE: In Other News:Rep. Jack Williams Marty Connors Arrested On Federal Corruption charges
Marty Connors was Gov. Bob Riley's first Chief of Staff when Riley was first elected. He got my attention when he used that post as an opportunity to announce that the Alabama Republican Party was "declaring war on the AEA". The teachers in Alabama really don't need such enemies in such powerful positions. When Gov. Bentley declared that "Alabama public education sucks", most did not realize he was bragging at how well his party had succeeded in that declared war.

The key will be proving that he knew that bribes were offered.

I was browsing around and saw where Jack's rivals site hadn't been updated since 2015.

Was this site ended or moved?

Also, did Jack contribute to Blazers247?

Putting it up for a vote in itself as a request from Connors etc. is not a crime.

Yeah, it will depend on whether the prosecution can prove that Jack knew about the bribe. He was not the one accused of giving or taking bribe money as far as I understand.

Doing it for money is, though. And even if Williams didn't get the money if he knew someone else was being paid for it, that's conspiracy

Not in disagreement with you on it.

I wonder if any type plea deal would be offered to Jack if he knows that he is guilty.

Way too many people connected to UAB are turning out to be crooks.

Scrushy
Oliver Robinson
Jack Williams.

Why can't anyone find dirt on Watts. Is he the only clean one?

There are plenty of crooks to go around, UAB just doesn't have a law school pumping out prosecutors and senators

While UAB might take ownership of Oliver Robinson, it can only take a minor share of Scrushy (who we must share with Troy and Healthsouth) and a little more for Williams who operated an early Blazer sports forum and pushed for UAB's causes in Montgomery. Watts hasn't had to do anything but follow his bosses' instructions. Maybe Williams upset the same folks that Siegleman offended?

Why? Because he's friendly to UAB? Have you advocated the same leniency of bus-tossing for others who have been indicted?
