So Scumbry does not want his previous convictions mentioned in his new trial. Most crooks don't want anyone to remember their pasts. I bet Scumbry cannot even produce the pardon that George Wallace supposedly gave him after his first felony conviction. Did Wallace even grant a pardon?

Mr Sumbry,there a lot of good people in Phenix City that voted for you,so why must you betray them, both black and white? The best thing for you to do is retire and not embarrass the citizens of Phenix City no more than they have already been. I am not trying to make you look bad but if you stay and fight you will always be remembered as a looser.

Now Scumbry may not have received a pardon after all. Huh? How can this be? How could the Probate Judge allow him to run without proof of a pardon back in 1982? Who was the probate judge? Does this mean every close vote over the years can now be challenged if Scumbry voted for it? Throw him out now. Take his buddies with him. Scumbry should be removed immediately until he can produce the pardon. Since the Pardons and Parole Board has no record of the pardon, it never happened.

It wasn't George Wallace. It was Fob James that granted the pardon if one was granted in 1982. James served as governor from 1979 until 1983 as a Democrat. He later served as a Republican. If he did grant a pardon for Sumbry, James should be convicted for stupidity.
