Dems may book Harry Lyons from the ballot

The Birmingham News (al.com) reports: Harry Lyon said he expects to be tossed out as the Democratic nominee for chief justice when a state party committee meets Friday over online comments by the Pelham lawyer.

A five-member committee of the Alabama Democratic Party will convene in Birmingham to hear evidence, then decide if Lyon, a frequent candidate, should be kicked off the ballot for violating party bylaws and judicial ethics canons. ...

The charges relate to recent posts by Lyon on Facebook that bash the Republican nominee, Roy Moore; criticize President Obama's support for gay marriage and call its proponents sick and perverted. ...

If Lyon is removed Friday, the State Democratic Executive Committee will set a schedule for new hopefuls to qualify and seek executive committee approval, Bradley said. -- Read the whole story -->Alabama Democrats to decide on disqualifying Harry Lyon as party's chief justice nominee | al.com
