Is Roy Moore Headed to Washington?

Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore is still awaiting the appeal of the Court of the Judiciary's decision to effectively end his judicial career, but he may have a new job lined up that would make that appeal moot.

The Montgomery Advertiser newspaper reported late last week that Moore was among eight candidates interviewed by Gov. Robert Bentley to potentially replace U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.). The former Alabama Attorney General is now President-elect Donald Trump's choice to lead the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Advertiser reports:

In addition to Moore, Bentley interviewed U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks; Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh (R-Anniston); and Republican Sens. Arthur Orr of Decatur and Cam Ward of Alabaster. Sens. Bill Hightower (R-Mobile) and Trip Pittman (R-Montrose) were also interviewed, along with House Ways and Means Education chairman Bill Poole (R-Tuscaloosa).

Kayla Moore, the chief justice's wife, confirmed the interview in an email, saying it took place Tuesday ... 

Yasamie August, a spokeswoman for Bentley, said in an email Wednesday that Moore—suspended in September over an order telling probate judges they had a "ministerial duty" not to issue same-sex marriage licenses—was "one of the top picks" in a survey sent to more than 400 members of the Alabama Republican Executive Committee last month.
