In the middle of some of the worst economic times this state has ever seen, Republican Ag Commissioner John McMillan, has stooped to a new low by making up "Confidential Assistant" position to be filled by, none other than Mr. Youtube Sensation himself, Dale Peterson.
Apparently, Mr. Peterson is more than willing to join the ranks of individuals he once described as "thugs and criminals." The annual salary of over $70,000, though, likely made the pill needed to jump on the bandwagon pretty easy to swallow.
Folks, we can't sit idly by and watch this type of blatant political posturing by elected officials. I'm sure John McMillan will appreciate Dale's advice as a "Confidential Assistant;" but the fact is, there are too many Alabamians out there worrying about finding, or keeping, a job of their own for the head of the Ag Department to go around making up positions just to clear the field of 2014 opponents. Hasn't Dale done enough to make Alabama the laughing stock of the entire country?
If the actions of John McMillan are indicative of what the Alabama Republican Party is all about, the people of Alabama won't stand for it. In the words of Dale Peterson, himself, "We're better than that!"
