Why are you still asking questions?

Who cares if Attorney General Troy King got 14 free tickets to a luxury box for an Atlanta Braves game from Alabama Power five and a half months ago? And further, who cares if the utility didn't report the gift to the state Ethics Commission until after a reporter started asking questions? After all, King said there's no conflict of interest, so shouldn't that just be the end of it?

you're right, no one cares. This was a non-story. the liberal b'ham news hates another conservative popular Alabama Attorney General. Suprise, suprise. Is King the only elected official to ever accept tickets to a sporting event? of course not.

The same liberal newspaper that endorsed Bob Riley, Luther Strange, Drayton Nabers, and Beth Chapman. Good point.

Ethics Concerns or Witch Hunt?

How difficult would it be for the liberal newspapers and the others attacking Attorney General Troy King to ask Alabama Power what other public officials have sat in their skybox before? Or for that matter, how difficult would it be to inquire of every elected public official what sporting events they have attended in the last 2 years and who paid for their tickets?

The fact that these questions are not being asked of anyone but Troy King makes it look as if the liberal media in this State is more interested in “sticking it to” an elected conservative Attorney General, than they are interested in who paid for his tickets to a ballgame.

the fbi and usdoj need to investigate and watch king until his term ends. as if it were not enough to show childishness and no legal judgment to seek favors from the target of a joint fed state corruption probe (roy johnson), he now sees no conflict with this garbage. if it is a contribution, like he says, why didnt he report an in kind from alabama power company on his campaign finance report? could it be alabama power had a rate increase before the psc between the game and the election. this mess stinks. fish rot from the head down. just ask don siegelman.

the practice of law is a profession. one which relies on careful adherence to the rule of law and - believe it or not - very strict ethical rules. troy king has shown a careless disregard for ethical rules, and in so doing, has shown that he is wholly unqualified for the job. anyone who has even a casual understanding of the legal profession can see that this "boy" must go.

What rule or law was violated? Can you give me a cite? Just curious. None of the coverage from the media even suggested that King broke the law or violated the ethics statutes. I guess you know something that MSM doesn't.
