AL.com reports: Louise Alexander has been disqualified to run for the Alabama House District 56 because she did not file a required statement with the state Ethics Commission, according to the secretary of state's office.

Alexander said she filed what she was required to do and intends to fight the decision in court.

James Anderson, attorney for the state Democratic Party, told the party's state Executive Committee at a meeting today that he received a letter from Secretary of State Jim Bennett on Friday notifying the party that Alexander is disqualified. ...

The State Democratic Executive Committee passed a resolution supporting Alexander's effort to be reinstated as a candidate. If she is unsuccessful, the party will name another candidate for the seat no later than Tuesday, which is the deadline to do so, Anderson said. -- Louise Alexander disqualified in Alabama House District 56; says she will challenge decision | AL.com
