MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - A new video posted by the Alabama GOP is ruffling some feathers.
The video was posted Tuesday and uses the recent convictions of elected Democratic officials to push the Republicans' efforts at ethics reform.
In an interview on Good Day Alabama, Democratic State Representative John Rogers says this ad is not as effective as Republicans think.
"What about Gary White and other Republicans?" said Rogers, "White was a big-time Republican who was convicted."
Democrats have constantly been opposed to the new ethics legislation. With the latest conviction of Birmingham's Democratic Mayor Larry Langford, Democrats are facing scrutiny for their opposition to the ethics bill.
"Bills have come up and not gone anywhere," says Republican State Representative Paul Demarco. "People are tired and are talking about ethics."
John Rogers does not seem too worried about the effects of the ethics bill in 2010. "Economics are the real driving factor," says Rogers. "People got to find jobs."
