Alabama: Editorial on proposed recall law

The Birmingham News looks at the irony that Senator Roger Bedford, sponsor of a constitutional amendment proposing a new state-level recall law, was the former leader of the legislature who never proposed it when the Democrats were in power, but has now put it forward once the Republicans took over.
Couple of points in there -- it would only be for state-level officials, and would not include local officials. Amendment would require 25% of turnout and no recall in the first year.

The editorial asks for more details (according to the amendment, that would be left up to the legislature).
