Yahoo! News - Ten Commandments Judge Stripped of Office|
The Alabama chief justice whose refusal to obey a U.S. order to move a Ten Commandments monument fueled a national debate over the place of God in public life was stripped of his office by a state judicial panel on Thursday.I'm afraid this is the making of a political martyr. Could a run for the Alabama governor's office be far behind?
"Finding no other viable alternatives, this court hereby finds that Roy S. Moore be removed from his position as chief justice of Alabama," said a statement read by a member of the nine-member judicial panel.
