The Madison County GOP is censoring Republican candidates PDF Print E-mail

The Madison County GOP is censoring Republican candidates by Thomas Scovill
Republican Representative Barry Moore of Enterprise sold his home to EEC, a local company he is supporting for state economic development. Was that a really good idea?
Whatever you think, I would have thought that debunking part of a Bill Britt article by posting it with a comment that the sale was at fair market value would have been appreciated by Republicans across the state who see Bill Britt as a  tool of the AEA, the parent company of the Alabama Democrat Party.
But when you do it in Madison County, you get blocked from the Facebook page of the Madison County Republican Executive Committee.
Silly me, I was thinking talking about a conflict of roles before one of our legislators gets indicted might be preferred to doing so afterwards. After pleading guilty to corruption and resigning from the Alabama House, wonder how Greg Wren feels about it?
I am new at being a candidate. What other surprises are coming my way?

Where are the candidates on the internet sales tax? by Thomas Scovill

Speaker Mike Hubbard reminded us on APT's Capitol Journal program on April 4 that he is eager for you to start paying sales taxes on you internet purchases. Now would be a good time to ask the candidates on your ballot about whether they want you to pay more in taxes. I think it's best to know the answer before who decide whom to vote for. It may be that the use tax is not new, but it will sure feel new when they start forcing internet retailers to collect it.
