Senate candidate, and BP contractor, Trip Pittman could not get the oil off him. He was rejected by his constituents and barely got 7% of the vote. Many in Baldwin County predicted he would receive less than 10%, they were right.
Baldwin County has now voted out 2 of the three most corrupt politicians in the county. Tim Kant and his partner in BP scam Trip Pittman are history. Jack Burrell, Pittman’s Bible study partner will be next. He will be voted out or maybe indicted prior to the next election for his involvement in the Fairhope Airport Authority “bidding” scandal.

Scary to think 25,000 people voted for someone who betrayed them on every level, that is a good indicator as to why Alabama is number 1 in political corruption.
Alabama’s Republican choice now comes down to two and both have also betrayed the people of Alabama. It will be an election that will require you to hold your nose while voting, some people are going to get off the Republican ship and vote Democrat.
