Alabama attorney files lawsuit against Gov. Bentley challenging Confederate flag removal

Via Billy

A Cullman-based attorney has filed a lawsuit against Alabama's governor saying Robert Bentley didn't have the authority to remove Confederate flags from the grounds of the state Capitol.

The lawsuit states the Alabama Historical Commission didn't follow its mandate and the governor "overstepped his authority" when four Confederate flags were removed from the Confederate Memorial Monument on June 24.

Melvin Hastings filed the suit on behalf of himself in Montgomery County Circuit Court on Tuesday afternoon. The suit lists Bentley, Alabama Historical Commission and its acting executive director Lisa Jones as defendants.

  1. Give 'em HELL Melvin! I cannot wait for the "recall" proceedings to begin. Robert Bentley is such a disappointment. He personifies what is wrong with this country from border to border and coast to coast. He ran as a right wing conservative, but in the end he proves to be another lying communist who enables the regime to have their way with people who as a whole reject the novus seclorum ordo.
