THREAD: Apropos of @GDouglasJones saying he plans to listen, here's a story about my most substantial (but still pretty limited) interaction with our new Senator-elect. /1 #alsen #AlabamaSenateElection
Birmingham Bar held panel a couple of years ago on impact of Shelby County v. Holder. Almost everybody on it is now on twitter: @JoyceWhiteVance, @edwardstill , yours truly, and -- who was it, oh right -- the guy who prosecuted the 16th Street Baptist bomber. /2
We all show up, and the crowd is kind of small, and @GDouglasJones says something like, "you know what? Y'all know more about this than I do. I'm just going to go into audience and listen." /3
