MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Democratic Party will hold a hearing Friday in Birmingham on disqualifying Harry Lyon as the party's nominee for chief justice.
Lyon says Party Chairman Mark Kennedy ordered the hearing for him to show why he shouldn't be disqualified. Kennedy's order says Lyon has violated party bylaws, including one that says people are entitled to honest and ethical government.
Lyon said he expects to be kicked off the November ballot because party officials want to name someone else to take on the Republican nominee, Roy Moore. He said the party never expected Moore to win the Republican nomination against two opponents, and now the party wants to change candidates.
Friday's hearing does not involve a complaint from a Huntsville voter about Lyon not filing campaign finance reports on time.
