Former Alabama Supreme Court Judge Roy Moore has been removed from office for ignoring a federal appeals court ruling. Given the circumstances, I doubt another outcome would even be possible. Moore’s defense that the Alabama State Constitution acknowledges God doesn’t mean that he has the right to contradict a federal order – that’s basic McCulloch v. Maryland stuff any high schooler should know.
Of course, that radical “extremist” Bill Pryor who was viciously attacked by the Democrats for supposedly not following the rule of law (an idiotic charge to begin with) is the one largely responsible for pushing for Moore’s removal. Hardly the actions of someone who was supposedly so far out of the mainstream of legal thought as to not warrant an up-or-down vote.
