Roy Moore Gets Alabama AFL-CIO Endorsement

August 7, 2012

Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore picked up an unusual endorsement Monday -- the state AFL-CIO.

The group normally endorses Democratic candidates, but chose Moore in his comeback bid race for chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

Moore is best known for being removed from office back in 2003, when he refused to remove a Ten Commandments monument he has put in the lobby of the state's judicial buidling after a federal judge ordered him to do so.

Alabama AFL-CIO president Al Henley told the Associated Press that Moore is "not controlled by corporate interests."

The AP:

Henley said the AFL-CIO doesn't share Moore's view on separation of church and state, but he had a record as a circuit judge in Gadsden and as a Supreme Court justice from 2001-2003 of treating the average person fairly in court.

Moore has mounted two unsuccessful gubernatorial runs since his 2003 ousting.
