Magic Memories? Where's TK?

It was hard to miss the account of the arrest of sex shop owner William Posey Wilson, 72, of Leighton. Wilson was arrested for failure to register as a sex offender and being a convicted felon with unrestored rights in possession of several firearms. He was not arrested for selling sex toys at his shop Magic Memories .

Has Luther Strange quietly instructed his minions not to prosecute those who own such shops, technically illegal in Alabama? The fact that former attorney general Troy King enforced the sex shop law, a law that was accidentally passed, did nothing to ensure his legacy. Now, if Big Luther will remove the laundry list of crimes of moral turpitude that TK added while in office, perhaps the current attorney general will indeed leave a worthwhile legacy.
