7 Things: Challenges to redistricting rulings come into focus, Biden’s family’s businesses had access to his office; and more …

7. More alligator concerns creep into the middle and northern parts of Alabama, but wildlife groups say this is unlikely. This is not the first time the state has looked to downplay the possible presence of prehistoric killing machines in populated areas.

6. Never-going-to-be-President Hillary Clinton is mad about Alabama’s abortion law, claiming it restricts the movement of women. As usual, Clinton is lying. Attorney General Steve Marshall has been pretty clear about this, if you help a person commit a crime, that is a crime and that is what he is going to prosecute.

5. Gov. Kay Ivey says Alabama can do expansive road projects all over the state. Ivey says that the pitched battle over U.S. 43 and I-65 is “simply not an either-or proposition,” but at some point, money is going to become a factor.

4. Turns out, it was true, Huntsville City Councilman Devyn Keith was running an illegal rental out of his home while the city was cracking down on such businesses. Don’t worry, he shut it down finally and claims that he did nothing wrong, as he usually does when he does something wrong.

3. The health of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is apparently a very big deal, unlike the visibly deteriorating leader of the free world. Alabama’s U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) compared McConnell’s issue to that of a kid with his bell rung in a football game, “I’ve seen kids in my profession of football really struggle for a long time after a concussion. That’s the reason you don’t play them after that.”

2. As Hunter Biden is looking at charges for some of his many crimes, a probe into President Joe Biden is now moving to a different phase with U.S. Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) demanding the National Archives turn over unrestricted access to e-mails from Biden to his family’s business associates that were sent as then-Vice President Biden assisted them using his position, the Ukrainian energy company Burisma is specifically mentioned.

1. The recent ruling that declared that a special master is now in charge of drawing congressional districts is going to get appealed on multiple levels. Secretary of State Wes Allen is asking the court to pause the decision as it is being challenged, while Attorney General Steve Marshall is ready to challenge this decision as well and claims, “the Legislature’s map complies with the Voting Rights Act and the recent decision of the U.S. Supreme Court.”
