Hearing scheduled on Lyon disqualification

Posted: Updated:

    Alabama's Democratic party is setting a timetable to decide wether to replace its candidate for state Chief Justice.

    Candidate Harry Lyon says party chairman Mark Kennedy wants him to show why he should not be disqualified.

    Kennedy contends Lyon has violated party bylaws.  He says that includes a bylaw saying people are entitled to honest and ethical government.

     The hearing is not related to a petition saying Lyon should be disqualified for not filing campaign finance reports.
