Alabama: Republicans file suit to remove 4 Democratic senators from the ballot

AP reports: A judge has scheduled a hearing Oct. 31 for a Republican-backed lawsuit that seeks to disqualify four powerful Democratic state senators who are seeking re-election.

The suit, filed by former Republican attorney general candidate Mark Montiel, seeks to remove from the Nov. 7 ballot Senate President Pro Tem Lowell Barron of Fyffe, Senate Majority Leader Zeb Little of Cullman and Senate budget committee chairmen Hank Sanders of Selma and Roger Bedford of Russellville.

Autauga County Circuit Judge Ben Fuller has scheduled the hearing for Halloween. ...

Montiel argues that the four senators should be removed for not filing the proper campaign finance reports with the secretary of state in the Democratic primary. The four senators said they followed a long-standing state practice of not filing a detailed campaign finance report when a candidate has no primary opposition. -- Hearing set on suit seeking to disqualify Alabama senators - Tuscaloosa
