Local blogger Wade Kwon is tackling this question via a month-long series on Wade on Birmingham, taking a look at some of Birmingham’s Biggest Crooks. The site describes the series as “a celebration of Birmingham’s most notorious crooks, whether they be liars, thieves, extortionists, swindlers or thugs.” If you’re in love with RSS feeds, you can even subscribe to one just to follow along.

The series’ calendar ends on August 31, the same day that Birmingham’s mayor, Larry Langford, is scheduled to go on trial on federal bribery and conspiracy charges.

I wish you would do one of your crooked profiles on retired Judge Alwin Horn, Judge Helen Shores Lee, Judge Michael G. Graffeo, both King brothers (judges) Judge Sheldon Watkins and Alabama Supreme Court Associate Judge Michael F. Bolin. If you're not sure what I am talking about, you are welcome to e-mail me back and I will be more than happy to fill you in. Judge Horn is guilty of obstruction of justice in a murder case, numerous civil rights violations and violation of the RICO Act. He is long past due in serving time in the Federal pen.

Appreciate the mention.People should vote on "Which metro Birmingham politician do you trust the most?" because the winner might show up on my list someday.
