Lottery passes based on a lie…
A proposed state lottery for Alabama passed the Alabama House of Representatives tonight on a second vote after the first vote fell just short.
The House voted 64-35 to pass the bill. That’s one more vote than the minimum 63 needed.
The House voted 61-37 for the bill on the first vote, two short of the number needed because it is a proposed amendment to the state constitution.
The House then voted to reconsider the bill.
Lawmakers did not take the second vote immediately, but resumed a debate on the bill that started this morning.
When they did vote again at about 11:30 p.m., Reps. Kelvin Lawrence, D-Hayneville and David Sessions, R-Grand Bay, voted for the bill after voting against it the first time.
Rep. Darius Melton, D-Selma, also voted for the bill after abstaining the first time.
The House vote sends the bill back to the Senate because the House made changes after the Senate passed it 21-12 last week.
The House and Senate adjourned about midnight and will return Friday morning.
The Senate will decide Friday whether to concur with the changes made by the House or send the bill to a conference committee.
What does it mean?
The first House vote came after lawmakers considered more than 20 amendments today, rejecting most.
The bill would direct 90 percent of lottery proceeds to the General Fund and 10 percent to the Education Trust Fund.
The first $100 million to the General Fund would be earmarked for Medicaid.
The House approved an amendment earmarking 1 percent of the lottery proceeds to the General Fund for volunteer fire departments.
Buy those votes.
$85 million dollar shortfall this year, more needed every year. No real plan.
What a joke, this fixes nothing.
So now Trump is deporting illegals?
What is happening?
Everyone is racist…
Hillary Clinton took additional steps to hide her e-mails?
ObamaCare is SUPER affordable….
Bannon is terrible…
Allegations of non-consensual encountersJuanita Broaddrick — The Arkansas nursing home administrator alleged in a 1999 Dateline NBC interview that Clinton had raped her in 1978, when she visited Little Rock for a nursing home seminar. The White House denied the allegations in 1999.Paula Jones — Jones has said that in 1991, Clinton propositioned her for sex and exposed himself when she was escorted to his room at a Little Rock hotel. She filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Clinton in 1994 — two days before a three-year statute of limitations would have expired. Clinton agreed to a settlement in 1998 and paid Jones and her attorneys $850,000. And it was during that case that he initially denied having a sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky.Kathleen Willey — The Democratic activist and White House volunteer said that in 1993, Bill Clinton grabbed and kissed her in the Oval Office’s private study. Heckled over the accusation at a campaign event in New Hampshire on Sunday by a GOP state representative, Hillary Clinton emphatically declined to comment.“You are very rude, and I’m not ever going to call on you,” Clinton said forcefully, looking directly at the woman. “Thank you.”
This is how pathetic this is…
Polling. Blood. Bath.
Huntsville City Councilman Richard Showers opened his runoff campaign for a new term Wednesday by saying his opponent “is not fit to serve as the leader of District 1 if he’s going to be crooked, and he’s already doing that.”
Showers finished second in Tuesday’s municipal voting with 29 percent to front-runner Devyn Keith’s 41 percent and third-place finisher Michelda Johnson’s 25 percent. Showers and Keith face each other in an Oct. 4 runoff for the north Huntsville seat.
“He got on social media saying I had resigned, that I was not going to serve,” Showers said of Keith. “I regret that he did that. That’s crooked. Ethically, it’s just wrong.”
Showers also accused Keith of posting photographs on social media that made it appear Showers was endorsing him. “He told people in my district that I was stepping down, that I was sick, that I couldn’t serve any farther,” Showers said. “All of those were deceptions that caused folks to react to things that weren’t true.”
Showers said he was surprised by Keith’s campaign. “We’re not accustomed to that in Huntsville,” he said. “To be sleazy is just not part of our chemistry.”
Keith denied the allegations Thursday saying it was “so unfortunate that a leader I have great respect for would go low. We’re going to go high.”
AL.com also checked Keith’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds today and saw no posts like those Showers referenced, though social media does let users delete posts.
This has got to be a comedy routine…
White people so racist…
Get to your safe space…
Brazilian police charged American swimmer Ryan Lochte on Thursday with filing a false robbery report over an incident during the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
A police statement said Lochte would be informed in the United States so he could decide whether to introduce a defense in Brazil.
The indictment will also be sent to the International Olympic Committee’s ethics commission, the statement said.
Lochte initially said that he and fellow swimmers Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz and Jimmy Feigen were robbed at gunpoint in a taxi by men with a police badge as they returned to the Olympic Village from a party Aug. 15. However, security video suggested the four actually faced security guards after vandalizing a gas station restroom.
No one cares…
