FILE - In this Tuesday, March 20, 2012, file photo, Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery, questions a bill that would require candidates for sheriff to have law enforcement training during their session at the Alabama Statehouse in Montgomery, Ala. Holmes, who was one of the first blacks elected to Alabama’s Legislature, has become known for statements _ sometimes outlandish, sometimes brutally direct and sometimes funny _ during a political career that has spanned 40 years in a conservative Southern state with a long history of civil rights struggles.
