The Alabama Attorney General has gone public numerous times saying he was going after white collar crime and political corruption.
It is my highest priority to ensure that those who serve the people of AL do so with the utmost integrity, and I've worked to bring more transparency to government by building on ethics laws. You deserve honest leaders that HELP you. I'm here to make that happen. pic.twitter.com/cXERUvBqnt

This is all campaign talk!
So far he cannot even answer a letter. The Attorney General needs to investigate the Ethics Commission because they act as if they have immunity from prosecution, a license to steal.
The Ripp Report has yet to receive a single response from the Ethics Commission, Alabama Bar, Attorney General or the Writ of Mandamus. It does not surprise me since the Ethics Commission Director, Tom Allbritton is facing some serious questions, hopefully in a court of law, about his actions as a lawyer and director of Ethics.
“As director of the Alabama Ethics Commission, Tom Albritton is the state’s policeman for conflicts of interest and ethical breaches that can arise throughout all levels of government, but having a private charitable trust he helps oversee pay more than $100,000 for his kids’ college tuition”
Holding hands with Tom Allbritton is John Plunk, vice chair of ethics.

John Plunk, The vice-chairman of the Ethics Commission, which polices campaign finance, was helping a sheriff, a Democrat, now accused of corruption, disguise the political money flowing to a Republican campaign consultant who’s now under investigation for crimes not even related to this case — unless the AG’s office has a secret deal for the consultant’s testimony, which the AG’s office and the consultant deny — and the ethics commissioner can’t remember because he was doing the same secret campaign money stuff for at least two other people, and we don’t yet know who they are.
A lot of news in Sheriff Mike Blakely's corruption trial today: State lawmaker testified for the defense, judge sent juror home because of misconduct allegations, Alabama rested its case after 31 witnesses, then prosecutors dropped 1 of 11 charges. Recap: https://t.co/I0qCdcqTCs

The Attorney General’s office is looking as bad as Ethics Commission.
“It has been awhile and a long time coming. The investigation has been on going by the Ethics Commission for just less than a year. Columbia Mayor Rhonda Freeman has her case pending before the Alabama Ethics Commission regarding numerous allegations. The case numbers are 2020-0337 & 0361. There will be a hearing on the matter on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, at 9:30 AM at the RSA Building, 9th floor Hearing Room, 100 North Union Street, Montgomery, Alabama.
Thanks for all your help.
The Columbia case goes before the Ethics Commission next week. Let’s see if the Mayor and police are given a pass by Ethics. Ethics has been provided enough evidence by a concerned citizen that show’s a clear pattern of corruption in Columbia by the Mayor. The city council of Columbia could have solved the problem, however they chose to blame the concerned citizen while remaining blind to the obvious.
How can the citizens of Alabama expect the Alabama Ethics Commission to investigate any wrong doing if in fact their own Director and Vice Chair are the accused?
The people of AL deserve honest & trustworthy service from public employees and officials, and as Attorney General I am committed to prosecute those who abuse their positions for illegal personal gain. https://t.co/IXelpk1nYt

ETHICS in Alabama is a LICENSE TO STEAL

WHAT ETHICS https://lagniappemobile.com/a-question-of-ethics/
Tail wagging dog.
Ugly is the future for Alabama. Dark times ahead.
If you can not beat them then join them
I am goi g to have Albritton manage a trust and send my kids to college.
See Ripp, IT’S ALL GOOD
Oh, Ripp, get over yourself
Alabama is for Alabamians
You Yankees that move in are outsiders. Either accept this or go back up north to your Yankee Paradise
See? We Alabamians are not impressed with Yankees. We know you messed up your state so when you come down here remember to leave your enlightened. (Ha ha) destructive politics at the Mason Dixon Line. For those of you who are from
The north, the Mason Dixon Line is the line between Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland that divides the north from the south. We know that northern schools no longer educate Northern schools indoctrinate. Yankee school kids can not even find these states on a map. But southern kids can find these states and know true people from Yankee scum
I don’t know what you’re measuring by but alabama is number 47 gdp per capita and high schools ranked 37, below all yankee states.
They probably want to be on the receiving side of federal funding rather than subsidizing someone else’s state.
Oh stop with the crap of Alabama being 47. This “measure” is made up by, once again, some Yankee spouting this tired trope. This trope is just another way to increase property taxes to pay off teachers unions.
Case in point: Look at New York City schools. Gangland violence
Ask a Harvard Law student to name three Supreme Court Justices.
I once attended the public schools up North and see decay and ignorance where they teach environmentalism, sex education, and critical race theory. We once had to deal with Yankees. Now we will have to deal with a generation of dumb, arrogant, belligerent, and “woke” Yankees. I say convert the Southbound lane of I-95 to Northbound and show the Yankees the way back up North.
I didn’t realize Mobile, Birmingham, Atlanta, etc are doing so much better than NYC schools. I know it’s communist talk, but the north has more than just cities and the south too has cities.
Supreme Court Harvard grads: 21 (First place)
Yep and those are the liberal god hating devils
Don’t throw your fatuous cherry picked facts.
I don’t hear of a southerner retiring and moving to Albany. As a matter of fact Yankees retire and move down south. But wait! You say the north is so much better! Well please tell those Yankees that they need to stop moving down here. Please please
You group the entire north into New York City and complain about cherry picking?
Alabama is a bargain for Albany residents. Albany is out of Alabama residents price range.
Can you give me some non cherry picked numbers?
All I can find is 8th in crime out of the 50 states. Mobile, the murder capitol at number 1. Healthcare system ranked at 45. #5 for welfare recipients (above any yankee state). 29th in economic growth, that’s better. #47 in education. But, I don’t know, tell me some good stats.
I don’t see what good it does for anyone to ignore problems?
You want a good Yankee stat? Well Y O U moved down here. Why? After all, the north is so great, right?
You are proof that the north is messed up
Oh yeah, the north is not all big cities but the big cities tilt the entire state to liberal. This is the reason why Yankees move down here because big cities in the northern states make the entire state liberal. Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Minnesota, and the list goes on and on
See Yankee, your tired talking points are ineffective. We have heard this before and know the truth
Now go run to your liberal think tank to get new talking points. Oh wait! The liberal think tanks have not thought of a new talking pint in the past 30 years
You have been owned (insert mic drop here)
I moved here because your lack of skilled workers lets me make lots of money and there’s nothing you can do about it. You took yankee jobs by tax breaks and your community suffered for it. I didn’t say anything about not liking Alabama. Ignoring your problems isn’t loving your state. It’s abandoning it.
I’m not a liberal. You’re just wrong.
Maybe it’s my yankee enlightenment, but I think we really need to stop this generalized villain thing. I don’t care what you think about me. But it’s going to get much worse very soon. All you hear is Nancy Pelosi is a monster! McConnel is an asshole. AOC, MJT, whatever.
That’s not the problem. If Pelosi goes, another person just like her will replace her. What’s the point?
The problem, which TV won’t tell you, is 100% due to gerrymandering.
The system has been changed to where most politicians/political parties don’t compete. It doesn’t matter what they call themselves.
That’s how you get failed states. That’s how you get plaques warning you of cancer in every building like California. They, all of them, are robbing us blind. And all we can do is yell about yankees and rednecks liberals, deplorables, etc.
Turn your tv off and take a vacation or something.
I heard Jack has a record of crimes w juveniles
Alabama is the most corrupt state.
Mr. Ripp in my Bible it says love one another and thou shalt not steal.
Why don’t you show your Bible to the corrupt politicians?
Steve Marshall is a fine man. A good man. He attends church regularly. Ripp find some other public servant to bother. Your shtick is stale.
Ripp you aren’t in the club. Prepare yourself for defeat. Jack owns you and your rinky dink sight.
Jack might own you but he doesn’t own us. By the way, the term is “site” as on “website.”
Get a new hobby. This county ain’t big enough.
