Nodine: "I'm Considering Running For Congress"

Nodine: "I'm Considering Running For Congress"

Posted: Updated:

Former Mobile County Commissioner, Steve Nodine, tells News 5 he is thinking about running for Jo Bonner's seat in Congress. In an email, Nodine said he vast experience in politics and his expertise would prove to be an asset to South Alabama. He went on to say:

"I know some will be skeptical of my interest in this congressional race after wrongfully being accused of crimes, drug abuse and personal mistakes."  I was never given a second chance, I had no record prior to my wrongful prosecution because of my personal failings and all I ask is for a second chance to serve the citizens of South Alabama." I have the determination, the experience and fortitude to serve as Congressman for the 1st Congressional District of Alabama."

Nodine says he is eligible to run for Congress despite his status as a convicted felon.  He just can't run for state office or vote. You may remember, Nodine is serving time in the Baldwin County jail for perjury and a domestic violence charge. He went on trial for the murder of Angel Downs and it ended in a mistrial.  Efforts for a second murder trial did not pan out. He did serve a time in a federal prison in Florida on a federal firearms charge.
