Inauguration 2007: New State Auditor Makes History

Appellate Judge Greg Shaw and State Auditor Samantha Shaw have made state history by becoming the first couple elected to statewide office at the same time in Alabama, but she says it wasn't easy.

At her swearing-in ceremony, she said that if a husband and wife want to test the strength of their marriage, they should run simultaneous statewide campaigns.  Shaw proved that she and her husband passed the test. Greg Shaw administered the oath of office to his wife as their two sons stood beside them.
