Tim James tweeted a denial that he would fire or attempt to cut Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban’s salary.
Here is the tweet: “Dispelling another untruth from the Byrne camp: I will neither be firing nor cutting Coach Saban’s salary if elected.”
Anyone who believes this is a fool. James is in bed with the Alabama Education Association (you know, the people who like corruption in the form of double-dipping). Tim James is without principle and an Auburn fan. He does not have the best interest of Alabama or the University of Alabama at heart.
The fact the campaign responded to a rumor discussed on message boards and talk radio makes this into a big story. Will it sink the James campaign? It should.
UPDATE: The Paul Finebaum show today is very interesting to hear the Auburn fans defending Tim James.
