JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Paul Littlejohn III is out of jail , but will he still serve an active role in Judge Sue Bell Cobb's campaign? It's a question that still hasn't been answered more than 24 hours since Littlejohn turned himself in to Jefferson County Sheriff's Office for allegedly violating the state's sex offender's law.
This comes as the Cobb campaign released a new ad on social media. It features this dancing man in a tutu with the message to not get distracted---with the tag line "focus on the issue, not the sideshow."
It's unclear if this ad is in response to this latest controversy. Will this situation affect the campaign? John Saxon, who chaired Bill Clinton's Alabama campaign in 1992 and 1996 said he doesn't think it will.
"I don't think it's a story that has legs and will be a major problem," he said. " There are serious issues. Judge Cobb, Walt Maddox , and Representative field are good candidates . They are going to slug it out on the issues and that's the way it should be," he continued.
Saxon , said this situation will have another impact on campaigns moving forward.
