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