It wouldn't have anything to do with stuff like this persistent refusal to remove segregation laws from the books, 40 years after they've been declared unconstitutional, and the entire world-view that such a stance implies, would it?
With an amendment to delete segregation-era language from Alabama's Constitution headed toward defeat by a narrow margin, state officials say an automatic recount would likely be set for November 29th.
Officials are still tallying provisional ballots cast on November second, but it did not appear there were enough votes to change the outcome of the unofficial count. Even if a recount fails to change the vote, lawmakers have already introduced legislation to place a reworked version of Amendment Two before voters.
Nah - COULDN'T be.
