The amendment to remove segregationist language sailed through the Democratic-controlled state legislature with strong bipartisan support, and supporters expected it to pass when put to a statewide vote.But lawmakers also added a provision that would have stripped a 1956 amendment passed in the wake of the 1954 Supreme Court decision desegregating schools.The opposite happened instead, and Moore’s fierce opposition likely made the difference.“He had a huge impact.It was a measure that was set to pass without much opposition and then because he got involved it changed the dynamic completely,” said Susan Kennedy of the Alabama Education Association, the state public teachers’ lobby that supported the amendment.That amendment said Alabamans had no constitutional “right to education or training at public expense.”Moore and hardline conservatives pounced to argue the removal of that language would allow for a backdoor tax increase by judges who would see it as granting a constitutional right to an education, warning it would hurt taxpayers and threaten private schools and homeschoolers.
This amendment got caught in a more recent fight over education funding as well, an issue that’s both racially charged and far from symbolic for many voters in the state.

Miley Cyrus was feeling pretty cocky during her show at London's G-A-Y club on Friday night. The 21-year-old singer not only wrapped her legs around a giant inflatable penis during her performance, but she also sucked on an inflatable doll’s schlong!
Now that we think about it, the doll kinda looked like Liam Hemsworth!
