Support Democrat Miranda Joseph for Alabama State Auditor in 2018.
Joseph, a Certified Internal Auditor who holds an MBA from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, ran for the position in 2014 but was beaten by Republican Jim Zeigler.
Does that name seem familiar? It might. Zeigler was the man who, when asked about the accusations that Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore had pursued sexual relationships with teenage girls when he was in his 30s, shrugged them off in jaw-droppingly spectacular fashion:
“Take the Bible — Zachariah and Elizabeth, for instance. Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist,” Ziegler says, choosing his words carefully before invoking Christ. “Also take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”
“There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here,” Ziegler concluded. “Maybe just a little bit unusual.”
Zeigler is up for re-election in 2018. Joseph is running against him.
