Senate Ethics Committee to Meet Thursday

According to the Birmingham News

The state Senate committee that could recommend a punishment for Sen. Charles Bishop, R-Arley, who hit Sen. Lowell Barron, D-Fyffe, on the Senate floor June 7, plans to meet Thursday to organize.

Sen. Bobby Singleton, D-Greensboro, who is one of the five members of the Senate Ethics and Conduct Committee, said he expected members to elect a chairman.

The other members are Sens. Scott Beason, R-Fultondale; Kim Benefield, D-Woodland; Zeb Little, D-Cullman; and Jim Preuitt, D-Talladega

It will be interesting to see what kind of disciplinary action, if any, is recommended for Senator Bishop's juvenile actions that, once again, made the great state of Alabama the laughing stock of the nation. I do hope they recommend expulsion.
