Gambling bill controversy

Charges were brought against Ross for allegedly participating in a conspiracy to buy and sell votes for a gambling bill. In a ruling made on July 28, 2011, U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson denied the defense's motions for a judgment of acquittal. He refused to throw out the charges in the case despite some reservations he had claimed to have about the charges.[2]

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Arizona scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.

Note: As of April 2015, we were unable to locate any scorecards for the state of Alabama. If you are aware of a scorecard Ballotpedia has not included please email it to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.


Ross and his wife, J. Kelly, have two children. They currently reside in Montgomery, Alabama.
