The Attorney General, Ethics Commission and the Alabama Bar all wear the same dirty underwear. They protect one another, and politicians, from pesky political complaints and play a legal shuffle that results in whitewashing their culpability. It is perfectly clear that the Attorney General will always side with the Bar or Ethics. The Bar and Ethics depend on the Attorney General to cover their back.

As a citizen of Alabama you cannot expect any justice, accountability, or investigation into any complaint involving political corruption.

The Attorney General was given a pass, by the Ethics Commission for pac to pac contributions. Then the ethics commission said it was illegal for any Democrat to do the same thing.


A decade ago, before the Alabama Legislature passed the ban in 2010, tracking campaign finances in this state was nearly impossible. By shifting money from one political action committee to another, a cabal of lobbyists, consultants and political fixers laundered millions in campaign cash every election cycle. The lines from special interest groups to the candidates they sponsored were untraceable.

Please get a Lagniappe and read this article and you will see why Alabama is number one in the United States for being the most politically corrupt. The Ethics Commission sugarcoats 17 violations. The Bar Association and the Attorney General do nothing, no criminal charges are filed.

Noncompliance and ethics violations — Lawsuit and Examiners’ report allege issues at State Bar

“The Bar Association also paid McCallum $37,437 in August 2021, roughly 10 months after he resigned. The Bar has not explained why he received those perks after resigning while under investigation by the Ethics Commission

McCallum was fined $100,000 by the Alabama Ethics Commission for his violations, but faced no criminal prosecution from the Attorney General’s Office.”

Self-dealing? — Ethics director’s kids’ tuition paid from trust he oversees

The Ethics Commission’s Executive Director, Tom Albritton, has got a pass from the Ethics Commission, Alabama Bar and the Attorney General. The only recourse for any justice is to file a civil suit against Mr Albrittion the trustees and the bank. This is blatant in your face corruption.

“Albritton was confirmed by the State Senate as executive director of the Alabama Ethics Commission in March 2015, and that same year, two of his children received $15,000 scholarships to the University of Texas from the trust, according to 990 records. Overall, scholarships to Albritton’s children totaled $105,000 between 2014 and 2018, which is the last year for which the trust’s 990s are available, so it is possible there was more scholarship money distributed to them.

“The trustee shall not engage in any act of self-dealing as defined in section 4941(d), and shall not make any taxable expenditures as defined in section 5489,” it reads.

The Internal Revenue Service Section 4941(d) description of self-dealing would appear to prohibit a trust from paying tuition or other expenses for a trustee’s child or children, as that would directly benefit the trustee, referred to in the will as a “disqualified person.”

The Bar and the Attorney General saw nothing wrong with the Ethics Executive Director “self Dealing”


You would think that the media would be on this story like a dog in heat! However so far the Ethics Commission and the Bar Association see no problem with Mr Albritton receiving more than 120,000 dollars for his children’s education, from a trust where he is a trustee. The absurdity of their justifications of Mr. Albritton, further exposes the depth of corruption.

Mr Albritton is the Executive Director of the Ethics Commission. His actions as a trustee, which he has admitted to in Lagniappe articles, should require him to resign from the Ethics Commission, immediately.

The Ethics complaints filed by The Ripp Report involved a Municipal Judge, Councilman and Council President, State Senator and a district judge sitting as a circuit judge, without being elected to the position. These complaints as well as hundreds of other complaints filed by citizens, always get quashed by the dirty underwear trio.

The Corruption and incompetency of the Alabama Bar, Ethics Commission and Attorney General are if full view. When they are challenged they start squawking about Guns, Abortion, Immigration or liberal socialists. Anything that will distract from their own incompetence and responsibilities, usually proclamations of being a “Christian”, works.

This is a serious situation, it keeps Alabama corrupt and protects crooked politicians and elected officials. Alabama has dirty underwear.

    Alabama is a corrupt swamp. Fairhope is overcrowded and growing by the minute. I heard the other day that 10 families move to FH every day. Don’t doub that.

  2. They should boil the dirty underwear and make them all drink the broth.

  3. Just read the book “Shadow Government Southern Style” 2nd edition by Thomas T. Gallion III and y’all will get a belly full of the corruption in Alabama.

      Fairhope will soon break away from the public schools and taxpayers get ready for more taxes

      • Anonymous | July 2, 2022 at 9:01 am |

        Hey you people that recent moved in Fairhope:
        Just a few years ago Fairhope was a wonderful place to live. Low taxes, you could swim in the bay, you could find a parking place downtown and shop at a store that served the local residents and not the tourists, low taxes, and it was a small town.
        But now, you bought into the realtors’ bull and overpaid for a house in a subdivision east of town. You wanted something that you will never have here.

        • Politics these days | July 2, 2022 at 4:41 pm |

          It’s not only the recent residents to blame. Fairhope voted itself to be “victims”. Overwhelmingly.

    Mister Ripp i am down to 2 showers per week. Doing my part 4 cat list!!!

    • Water goes to the new subdivisions | July 2, 2022 at 10:30 pm |

      Good for you, Tommy Bahama,
      That leaves more water for the new subdivisions that are going in. The council doesn’t care about you. They care about Cox, D R Horton, Truland, and the developers that own the council
      Sherry Sullivan is owned by their bunch and does not care about the residents
      I saw her in the news the other day and she made. Freudian slip on how Fairhope is giving the water to new subdivisions

    • Easy to follow the money | July 3, 2022 at 12:00 am |

      Don’t do anything for cat list Actually it is Catalyst or Scott Boone Consulting
      Scott Boone is not the brain behind this group. Scot does not have the brain for this. Actually it is the real estate and good ole boy regime that uses his name that really runs the show. Scott does not have the sense to pour piss out of a boot
      Hey Jonathan Armstrong, you were the mouthpiece of this group in the north end of the territory and you lost
      Looks like the machine needs to regroup since Ripp has exposed you guys
      What are you going to do now? Change your name again? We will fond you. Just follow your money trail. Too easy

  6. A man pissed | July 3, 2022 at 12:27 pm |

    what a sh*tty council

    • Francis Ripp | July 5, 2022 at 1:23 pm |

      2 of the council were not even elected, A Banker, Jack Burell and the godfather of Catalyst Kevin Boone are the other three.

    Baykeepers has failed as an organization. Jubilees are a thing of the pass. Were once regular like good fishing from the pier and fish you could actually eat. The slime and muck that is Mobile Bay is proof that overdevelopment is here. The sickos on the council believe that you can actually keep building as much as you want and fairhope will not suffer. They have all made a fortune. Jack gets the payoffs and divvies it up. Sick little setup they have going. The land deal made them millionaires. Nobody said nothing. Robert Brown also made bank and ran off. The place is the scene of a crime. Wake up Fairhope! Your council is corrupt as the bay is sh*T!!!

      Amen, you said it.
      You speak truth to power
      Now, what should we do about these crooks and their crime of stealing our town from us?
