Joyce Vance just said she had worked for/with Doug Jones

when he was U.S. attorney, and had good things to say, including that he's familiar with the full array of issues necessary.

I'm feeling better about him now. Have wanted Sally Yates, but if Jones is more likely to get a 'quick' pass, by the Senate, as Attorney General, he gets my vote.

1. He would be an effective AG.

It would signal a robust DOJ who will be doing their job, and go where the evidence dictates.

2. Good to hear.

I know little about him, so let us know what you can.

I've thought little about Alabama, but I guess where they're good, they can be really good, like Governor Siegelman who the repugs just couldn't tolerate.

9. He was the AG that prosecuted race crimes in Alabama.

He has the guts and righteousness to do what we want....a DOJ free to pursue crime regardless of the political consequences.

Think repugs will permit him to do his job? Think about Governor Siegelman.

6. 16th Street Baptist Church bombing case

“Jones prosecuted Thomas Edwin Blanton Jr. and Bobby Frank Cherry, two members of the Ku Klux Klan, for their roles in the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. The case was reopened the year before Jones was appointed, but did not gain traction until his appointment. A federal grand jury was called in 1998, which caught the attention of Cherry's ex-wife, Willadean Cherry, and led her to call the FBI to give her testimony. Willadean then introduced Jones to family and friends, who reported their own experiences from the time of the bombing. A key piece of evidence was a tape from the time of the bombing in which Blanton said he had plotted with others to make the bomb. Jones was deputized to argue in state court and indicted Blanton and Cherry in 2000.[17][18] Blanton was found guilty in 2001 and Cherry in 2002. Both were sentenced to life in prison. Blanton was up for parole in 2016; Jones spoke against his release, and parole was denied. Cherry died in prison in 2004.[19][20]”

19. Another excellent pick

The only hang-up is that he hasn't been out of the military for the minimum seven years. I hope he gets a waiver.
