Former U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions lost his run-off election tonight horrifically, a symbolic extinguishing of the flame of the zombies tied to Balch & Bingham and Alabama Power.
The results are devastating. Sessions lost big, garnering a mere 39 percent of the vote with 99 percent of the ballots counted.
A pounding. A trampling. A whooping.
As we wrote in March after the primary:
Sessions was the symbolic figurehead of the resurgence, the “comeback” zombie of Balch & Bingham and their Siamese twin Alabama Power, who had hoped to once again walk among the most powerful.
Now Sessions and his cronies are among the walking dead.
Once at the pinnacle of power, Balch appears to be in the deepest, darkest bowels of disgrace.
Anything Balch touches appears to turn into excrement, and the President knows it; the public knows it; and even Balch’s closest allies know it.
No fluffy public relations spin, no footprint expansion by one or two attorneys, no new hires of freshmen attorneys can counter the new reality: Balch & Bingham is no longer the feared, powerful law firm that attracted the pillars of business and the top attorneys in their fields of practice.
And with the public already rejecting the idiotic p.r. campaign defending Balch, Sessions’ stinging loss hurts even more horribly this Tuesday night in July.
As Balch and Alabama Power swallow pints of coffee tomorrow morning, will they finally come to their senses and end the artificial, superfical war defending their miserable and unsavory conduct ?
Sessions lost tonight, and tomorrow night at midnight disgraced U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town’s last day in office comes to a crashing end.
Who would have thunk?
