Larry LangfordMany people in the city feel as though the former Jefferson County commission president already has the mayor’s office on the third floor of city hall in downtown Birmingham locked up. Doc’s Political Parlor made this post on August 22 that gave the idea that many believed it was only a matter of waiting for the votes to be tallied on October 9.

Now it appears that the federal government, the Securities and Exchanges Commission in particular, may be looking to put an end to it all. The Birmingham News reports that Mr. Langford’s financial records have been subpoenaed. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens next in this story.

I would like someone to explain to me who came up with that ridiculous poll. If you go along with Doc's Political Parlor let's not have an election. I read the poll and I believe it stated that Kincaid had 20% I cannot find anyone in Birmingham supporting Kincaid, so that poll is suspect. I talk to residents all the time through my job. Langford is the second choice behind Patrick Cooper. Valerie Abbott has a strong showing lately, but there is no way she will win the general election because she is a carbon copy of Kincaid. The police are also against her because she did not support the police and fire fighters raises. The negative campaigning has started. Would someone please give me a real poll conducted by non partisian group?

This stuff with the Securities Exchange Commission obviously comes from the world of the bizarre and predictable. I call on Congressman Artur Davis to investigate the behavior of the SEC through the House Judiciary Committee.
