Under the headline GOP: Grand Old Purity and sub-title Not Republican Enough, Jim McFerrin, who is is one of the two lawyers who successfully, in count, overturned the country's unpopular occupational tax, has been disqualified for failing the so called purity test by the Alabama Republician Party because he wasn't Republican enough to run as a Republican. If he had been allowed to run, it would have been against former Jeff County Circuit Judge Gloria Bahakel.
Judge Bahakel challenged McFerrin's qualifications even though she lost a re-election in 2010 and another in 2012. McFerrin feels that much of the decision to disqualify him was because he supported circuit Judge Robert Vance over Roy Moore for Alabama Chief Justice. Roy Moore was well know for his defiance of one of The United States Supreme Court rulings.
McFerrin defended his choice of Robert Vance because he thought that Vance was a much better choice and because he's as political as any judge he had ever been in front of and, that's what you want if you're a lawyer. The Alabama Republican Party also blamed Baldwin County lawyer Ginger Poynter from running for district judge there too. He also supported Vance over Moore stating that she had supported Moore until he had violated a court order. Poynter fended for conservative credentials but was not given opportunity to appeal to the full state Republican Party executive committee.
Jim McFerrin said I put my neck out there and it got chopped on. There were four other Alabama people attempting to run for office that were also barred by the Alabama Republican Party. Are we allowing one single party in this state to make poor decisions because of partisan reasons?
