Todayโ€™s Freaky Friday is a post by Doug Snow with the Facebook group Baldwin County Citizens for Accountability.

No way should the First Congressional District be represented by CATALYST and Hightower is CATALYST.

It is in the best interest of the constituents of the First District to elect a PUBLIC SERVANT, Jerry Carl.

Please spread the word and vote March 31 for Jerry Carl.

Jerry Carl Alabama Congress

Doug Snow

As a Jerry Carl supporter, this post reflects my personal opinion, and not the opinion of this group.

You might think I’m crazy for putting Bill Hightower’s social media statement out there for everyone to see. But I really want people to read this thing, and when I say read it, I want you to read between the lines. This statement personifies exactly what I’ve been talking about when it comes to Bill Hightower.

I guess he thinks we’re not smart enough to figure out that this is a political campaign. You don’t win political campaigns by putting out positive ads about your opponent.

He wants to put his personal friendship with Jerry Carl on his shirt sleeve. After reading the second paragraph of his statement, he has no problem throwing his so-called friend under the bus with personal non-political dirty laundry.

Lets assume Bill Hightower’s accusation about Jerry is correct about him borrowing like $200,000 to pay for his political campaign, I say, God love him. What in the Hell is wrong with that?

Bill Hightower is telling us that Jerry Carl went to the bank for $200,000 for his own campaign instead of following Bill Hightowers example oof prostituting himself out to every out of state special interest group that’s willing to hand him cash.

Compared to Bill hightower’s warchest of special interest money, Jerry has to do what he has to do in order to compete with Daddy Warbucks. He has to level the playing field if he wants any chance of winning.

Remember, every Hightower campaign ad you are going to see during this run off has already been bought and paid for by out-of-state special interest money. And trust me it adds up to more than what Jerry Carl supposedly borrowed from the bank.

In the end, the debt has to be paid back. Jerry may have to pay back a bank, but who do you think Hightower is going to owe?

Like I said, read his statement very carefuilly, read between the lines. If anything, Hightowers own words seem to reflect who is truely the desperate man.


I am disappointed in Jerryโ€™s decision to start the run-off campaign with these negative attack ads. My wife Susan and I always considered him a friend. Heck, he supported my prior campaigns. He knows me, he knows that I was rated one of the most conservative legislators in Montgomery, and he konws these attacks are simply untrue.

Campaigns are tough on candidates and they are tough on their families. We understand the stress Jerry must be feeling. I think it is telling that his campaign is over a half-million dollars in debt, over $200,000 of which is owed to a local bank. That would make anyone act out of desperation. But we thought Jerry was better than resorting to distortions and negative TV ads to achieve his personal political aspirations. I guess campaigns reveal the true heart of a candidate.

    A vote for Hightower is a vote for Catalyst
    Ainโ€™t no way am I going to vote for ANY CATALYST CRUD
    I wonder if the Catalysts are feeling the pinch on their corruption
    I cannot wait to see how the Catalyst candidates are going to answer for their association with Catalyst and Cox
    They are trying the โ€œWingnut conspiracyโ€ sound bite but it is not getting traction because the truth keeps getting in the way
    Lynn Stacey is turning f over in his grace to see his empire crumbling

    I had never heard of Jerry Carl until I received dozens of expensive cardboard ads touting his ‘Christian Values’. I voted against him immediately. He could be the best candidate ever but he will never get my vote by preaching; our greediest politicians were elected for their ‘Conservative Christian Values’……ad nauseam, as they sell us down the Fairhope pink sewer.

    • Angel D. Remembered | March 7, 2020 at 6:12 am |

      Carl is the normal one. Hightower’s ad sounded like a church hymn.

    • Anonymous | March 7, 2020 at 6:48 am |

      Hightower uses the Christian Conservative label lots more than Carl

    • Hey Georgia. You must be kin to sleepy Joe Biden and I guess think Carl talks a lot about religion. You must blind as bad as Bernie. Hightower shoves his Christian bullcrap all over the place while telling the biggest lies of them all. Take your kinfolks and get the hell out of Baldwin County. You have never been welcomed from the start!

    Carl is a better fit for the district in my estimation. He will do much better than Hightower in Washington.

      All of the donators are developers that are responsible for the out of control cancerous growth in Baldwin County
      These are the ones responsible for the deterioration of our quality of life
      As you can see if Hightower gets in he will owe these developers big time. Hightower has been bought. A defeat for Hightower will be a setback to these people who are responsible for ruining our home

      • Catalyst Fact Checker | March 7, 2020 at 12:33 pm |

        Your response is incorrect. You state that if Hightower gets in he will “owe these developers” big time. These are from the FEC and are donations accepted by Jerry Carl NOT Bill Hightower.

        • Anonymous | March 7, 2020 at 9:57 pm |

          So who is bankrolling Hightower?

          • The same people who are overbuilding the cheap houses. They are just hedging their bets on both candidates so they will not have to pay impact fees or face moratoriums

          • CATALYST

        • Hey Catalyst Fact Checker,
          While you were at checking your facts, what did you find on Hightower? Did you find that he has employed Catalyst at least TWICE? Also, while you were at it did you find the political money he also took from these predatory developers and took MORE?
          See, you are not the only one who can check facts. I bet you are a Catalyst that does opposition research in order to sling mud at the other candidates to hide the actions of Catalyst
          Get this: your group has been discovered and any politician who uses you will be a liability on their campaign
          Baby Boone might now have to look for honest work

    • Hey CATALYST that may be true so goes it in politics both sides need donations, however only one Candidate is Catalyst, thanks for the data

  6. Clotile Smith II | March 10, 2020 at 6:34 am |

    I’ve heard some disturbing things about Hightower let’s just together say, “Jerry Carl.”

  7. Catalyst supports real estate!
    Brokers unite behind Hightower.

    • Catalyst is Evil | March 11, 2020 at 5:23 am |

      Yeah, brokers unite behind Hightower and go mess up some other place because you already have trashed this place
      If you want further ruination then vote Hightower and his Catalyst kabal.

      • Real estate brokers will destroy this areA and once they have sucked the quality of life out of Baldwin, they will take their money and move on to destroy some other place.
        Catalyst is run by these types as they fund politicians who allow them to do whatever they want
        They are like predators

    Mister Ripp I heard they rigged the election for 30 years before you stopped it last time. I pray that this does not happen again. Are we making sure this doesn’t happen? I heard Tim Cants father-in-law is a no go but they are still trying. Amazing that most people are unaware of the rigging of fairhope elections. I guess it’s because YOU stopped them. They don’t like you Mister Ripp.
