Alabama's very own political whore.

Johnny Swanson.

(I know, but I found this on Kos)

12. Alabama
(last update: 12) Neither Ex-Governor Jim Folsom, Jr. or Don Siegleman filed to run against Senator Dick Shelby in 2004. That leaves Democrat Wayne Sowell, an NCO who supports marijuana legalization as the sacrificial lamb against Shelby (Democrat Johnny Swanson III was kicked off the ballot) Shelby should win big in 2004, in what will likely be his last term in the Senate.


It doesn't say WHY he was kicked off the ballot.

Turns out he was kicked because of his nomination as an independent in a run-off election and then tried to run as a Democrat.

Never mind the 1996 tax charge conviction and he doesn't even have the right to vote.
