Probation officer fired after winning election

AL.com reports:
An Alabama legislator asked a judge Thursday to block a newly enforced state law that caused him to get fired from the state job he held for 19 years.

Montgomery County Circuit Judge William Shashy held a hearing Thursday on Rep. Dexter Grimsley's legal challenge to Alabama's "double dipping" law.

The law prohibits legislators from having a second state job. It took effect the day after the legislative elections Nov. 4. Because of the law, the state court system fired Grimsley as the state's chief juvenile probation officer for Henry County.

He was the only person to lose his job immediately. -- Alabama legislator asks judge to block 'double dipping' law | AL.com
