Alabama Senator Turns Over Client List
An Alabama Senator turns over his law firm’s client list to the Alabama Ethics Commission under seal for their review. According to Senator Phil Williams the Alabama Political Reporter, a blog run by Bill Britt has made baseless attacks on his character and law practice. Williams says Britt has written a number of posts attacking him over the past few weeks. Williams had ignored Britt’s posts until a few days ago when Britt entered the realm of slander and defamation by alleging that Williams is under criminal investigation. Williams is confident a review of the files will show he has zero clients with state interests and that his annual statements of economic interest to the Ethics Commission have fully complied with the law. The Ethics Commission is in receipt of Senator Williams’ client list and will review it at his request to discover if there are any conflicts of interest.
