AUDIO: Troy King on Dale Jackson

In case you missed it......Attorney General Troy King appeared on WVNN with Dale Jackson this morning where Dale asked him about his hiring and promotion practices within the AG's office and also about the rumors that have dogged him for over three weeks now. King was there to talk about the Thomas Arthur case. I have edited the audio so that it only contains his answers to his hiring and promotion practices and the rumors.

Troy once again scurried for cover by stating that he does not address rumors. But, that isn't exactly true. When it was rumored that he wore a flak jacket underneath his shirt King went so far as to ask a reporter if they wanted to see under his shirt to dispel that particular rumor.

His answer about his hiring and promotion practices came directly from a commenter at J.D. Crowe's blog about the editorial cartoon in yesterday's Press Register. Strangely, the commenter was anything but 'Pro-Troy'. There again he's paying Chris Bence $104,000 a year and the best Bence can do is steal comments off of a blog to use in King's defense. Can't come up with a single, original statement of his own.

Troy King's answer to whether or not he can justify his hiring and promotion practices reminded me of 'Scar' in the Lion King when Scar said "I AM THE KING AND I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT!!"

Hats off to Dale Jackson for getting Troy to appear on the show and for asking him these questions. Well done Dale Jackson!!

Well I wish Dale had followed up on exactly what important duties the $57,000 a year fresh out does that make him so valuable to the taxpayers of Alabama. Especially when I'm sure we could hire some one with the same education for at least $25,000 a year less. What qualities or qualifications does he have to justify that extra money -- more than many people in Alabama make in an entire year.

That was beautiful. About the same as "what about the children"..."I do not discuss rumors" is all he can say!!! Oh...I look forward to what lies ahead...

Apparently the podcast has been deleted from Jackson's website.
