Many people watched the bully council in their last meeting where Councilman Boone flipped out at the end of the meeting. What many people did not know was why? Watch the video again and you will see that when I mention the “Strawman” series in Lagniappe, Boone realized that I had read some of the latest information submitted to the Alabama Judiciary related to the case.


Many people watched the bully council in their last meeting where Councilman Boone flipped out at the end of the meeting.

What many people did not know was why? Watch the video again and you will see that when I mention the “Strawman” series in Lagniappe, Boone realized that I had read some of the latest information submitted to the Alabama Judiciary related to the case.

‘Straw man’ Lawsuit Reveals Complex Baldwin Business Partnerships

Boone panicked and did not know what I may say next.

He realized that the subject had switched from McSharry to “Strawman” and he starts yelling to adjourn the meeting.

It will take a little reading but the “Strawman” case demonstrates the depth of corruption and the spider graph links the players.

‘Straw man’ Lawsuit Reveals Complex Baldwin Business Partnerships

Some of the links are on a Lagniappe Paywall

Sale pending on Magnolia Springs property central to ‘straw man’ case

You will see how a conspiracy works, how attorneys and judges disregarded any conflict of interest that they may have for favors from a few.

The latest article outlines a new lawsuit filed by a Baldwin County Property Association, Daphne’s Bellaton.

Burke, DeLaney implicated in new civil lawsuit

“The complaint alleges the defendants, named and unnamed,”form an integral part of of an intricate web of multiple concentric layers of companies that are intermingled around and intended, among other things, to conceal the interrelationships among and between, and to insulate from liability, the defendants, DeLaney and Burke as the principal actors who have ultimately owned, controlled, managed or directed the operations and financial transactions of these defendants and non- defendants.”

Now look at the spider graph and you will see how all these people in one lawsuit are connected to the Judge. Look close and you will see Mr. Boone, aka LLC Boone, linked to Scott Boone his son and Catalyst front man, are connected to Tucker Dorsey, The Strawman, John Avant and the Judge.

Boone has already been linked to LLC’s that show a conflict of interest, yet he voted as a councilman to assist the developers and John Avant, behind his constituents back.

Investigative Reporting – Business Entity Records

The CATALYST council turned a blind eye to Boone’s conflicts of interests and now we see his connections to the “Strawmam” case.

Boone has lied to his constituents from the day he was elected, his loyalties lie with CATALYST.

Now let’s jump back to “Strawman” and the updated information submitted to the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission. Perhaps the best narrators of the deal and the years of litigation since, is Phillip Bass’ wife, Nell “Boots” Bass, and their daughter, Karen Bass.

Outright corruption involving lawyers, judges, County commissioner developers and third rate con men. Do you see the District Attorney or Sheriff doing anything ? Hell no these people are their friends.

This is exactly how CATALYST works.

My compliments to “boots” Bass and her daughter Karen Bass for outstanding research, and spider graph, good luck with your complaint against Judge Norton who has many questions to answer.

The Ripp Report will follow this story along with Lagniappe.

Baldwin County needs more people with guts to stand up and expose CATALYST and the blatant corruption within our Judicial system.

  1. It is unfortunate the Mobile Register did not pick up on this story. I guess the story takes too much time and brain energy and the Mobile Register does not have any “journalists” who can follow such an intense trail. Ms. Bass must be complimented on her research
    Also the Lagniappe has proven to be one ace of a paper. It is free yet it’s coverage is most impressive.
    When I am in Walmart I walk by the stand where the Mobile Register is on display. I pick it up, see what articles are in it, shake my head in disgust at the puff pieces that are being masqueraded as “news,” and put it down. That paper has become a joke
    But I stay amazed at how a little paper such as the Lagniappe can pull in so much data and connect so many dots.

  2. Is Mr. Boone the straw man?
    He looks like it.

  3. Fairhope Voter | June 7, 2020 at 9:51 am |

    Thank God for Lagniappe. This is why investigative reporting is so important and needs to be better funded. Especially on the most corrupt county where we live.

    Fairhope council is a disgrace. We need good candidates to support our Mayor.

  4. Anonymous | June 7, 2020 at 3:04 pm |

    This is clearly the Mayor’s fault. She is a moron.

    • Anonymous | June 7, 2020 at 6:20 pm |

      Karin isn’t a moron. She is getting under Catalyst’s skin and calling them out in their crooked ways
      It is goi g to take a lot more than throwing McSharry under the bus to get her off their backs. Karin is now playing offense and has the council on defense. Burrell can’t drink enough to make this go away

    More flat earth crap from yet another local crazy and the REMF reprints.

    • Anonymous | June 7, 2020 at 5:19 pm |

      Oh look here! The Catalyst shill is back at his REMF word that the Catalyst crooks told him to say
      Too bad you guys don’t have Chuckie writing for you guys anymore now your actions are coming to light

  6. PROOF EXISTS | June 7, 2020 at 3:33 pm |

    FINALLY, this proves what you have been saying all these years … absolutely NOTHING!

    • Spartacus | June 7, 2020 at 9:47 pm |

      Hey Proof Exists
      You can try to dismiss this all you want but I notice that yuh cannot dismiss the specific accusations put forth
      You Catalysts asked for specific examples and now Yiu are getting them. All you catalyst crooks can say now is “Flat Earth” and “REMF.”
      What else are you going to have to say when you have to face the voters or the Feds when they come after you scum bags?
      Maybe you can get Chuckie to give you more buzz words between now and then

  7. Kevin Bacon | June 7, 2020 at 3:45 pm |

    If you have to draw a spiderweb to find a conflict there is a good probability none exists. Go play the game degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon instead. Much more fun and true.

    • Anonymous | June 8, 2020 at 1:49 pm |

      Looks as if Ripp is closing in on the rat’s next because the catalyst lackeys are hollering

  8. Francis Ripp | June 7, 2020 at 4:14 pm |

    The straw man was Wayne Hopper, a former college roommate of Tucker Dorsey aka the “Strawman” who arranged and worked with Burke to pull off the scam. Boone’s connection proves he has had conflicts of interest in his voting since elected.

    • Anonymous | June 7, 2020 at 9:49 pm |

      Once again the Rippster owns another Catalyst troll
      Ripp, you can see these guys coming a mole away.

      FBI must be on their way like REMF has been saying for years. Can’t wait Yawn

      • Anonymous | June 8, 2020 at 12:26 am |

        Well maybe not FBI but at least the courts. Or better yet, the elections will get these crooks out of office and send them back to Georgia, Mississippi, or Hell.

  10. For starters. Anyone can tell you that in Mobile when you bring up the names Cunningham, DeLaney or Bounds, you know you have probably already been screwed in the rear end. They all just got together with mirrored scum and now have screwed BALDWIN county just the same. These people are the worst of the worst. Hey Boone, we were sitting in the meeting when you went off. Damn sure was a convincing “blow up” that you have screwed a lot of people. Next time just wear a sign around your neck and shut up. We won’t see your blood pressure raise to quickly and you won’t look like the liar and fool that we ALL already know you are.

    Geez, I read the Stawman article. I saw the facts. How is it that these people have not been charged with land fraud yet?
    Leroy Hill did not even do half of this over in Grand Bay 20 years ago but he was convicted
    Isn’t Judge Norton risking his own butt over this as well?

    I wonder how it feels to see your name being dragged through the newspapers telling everyone your business and connecting the dots on the crap you have been pulling

    • Anonymous | June 8, 2020 at 8:27 am |

      I knew Catalysts were greedy but I never thought they were deceitful because they were conservative Christians

    • Anonymous | June 8, 2020 at 7:54 pm |

      Not a newspaper. A blog. Nobody pays attention to the conspiracy theories.

      • Anonymous | June 9, 2020 at 8:37 am |

        More and more voters are becoming aware of the conspiracy theories. The fact that the politicians are hiding only gives credence to these theories

  13. These are good Christian men y’all are tearing down. Every one of them can be found in Church every single Sunday. That cannot be said for you Ripp. You are a dirty liberal.

    • God doesn’t live in a church | June 8, 2020 at 12:21 pm |

      Jack4Fairhope, just because someone goes to church doesn’t mean they are Christians. They could also be hypocrites
      Do you really think that just because someone goes to church that they are Christian? Of better yet do you think we buy this “I go to church so I am good crap?”
      If you think we buy this crap then you are stuck in the 1960’s.
      As for us if I need to talk to God I don’t need to go into a church and no religion has a monopoly on God despite what you think and what the crooked council members would want others to think
      Geez, You are stupid in this king we are that stupid

    • Good Christian men?
      Ha ha ha ha ha ha
      Do they have you fooled?
      Ha ha ha ha

    • Anonymous | June 8, 2020 at 12:26 pm |

      Ripp is a liberal? If these guys Are conservative then by that definition a conservative is a lying woman hating thief with a conflict of interest
      I am a conservative and these guys are giving conservatives a bad name. Conservatives don’t put their false piety on display as the hypocrites they are

    • Anonymous | June 8, 2020 at 5:51 pm |

      Uhmph. I just vomited in my mouth
      Good Christian men? Oh I am going to hurl again

      • Anonymous | June 8, 2020 at 9:10 pm |

        Go ahead and puke over this council and the members. They are the vomit of this town. When they are thrown out of office next election the nausea will abate

  14. 1960s were good years!
    Buncha queers!

    • Anonymous | June 9, 2020 at 8:35 am |

      What does sexual orientation have to do with Catalyst other than the Catalyst politicians are the butt boys of the developers and that the developers are screwing Baldwin?
      If you are going to talk about orientation than are you referring to Catalyst as the “giver” and the voters as the “receiver?” Or the emasculated members of the council?
      As for the 1960’s were you one of the draft dodging dope smoking hippies? I would guess Ripp was fighting in the Marines but I wonder what the butt boys were doing during your “good years.”

    • Anonymous | June 9, 2020 at 5:28 pm |

      To Jack4Fairhopia:
      Who do you think is left to vote for Burrell?
      Jack thought that if Kant got back in then Kant would anoint Burrell as the next mayor. Burrell blames Karin for messing that up but it was really Corte’s fault. You see, Corte forced Kant to vote on his apartments and would not let Kant to wait until after the elections. When Kant allowed the apartments to go through, Kant lost the support of Rock Creek

  15. Jack4Fairhope is definitely a prime example of exactly what a hypocrite is. Say what you want to stupid? It’s amazing that you too are the problem and will never be the solution. Go tell Burrell he made a big mistake not opening Quail Creek back open sooner and blaming the Mayor while we told you week after week Burrell had the power and should have. We know what you are Jack4Fairhope. Childish people who get on their knees for Burrell. That’s all you’ll ever be!

  16. to the moron saying this is a blog and not a newspaper..hello! they don’t have any news papers any more bro! Wow ignant!

    • Anonymous | June 9, 2020 at 4:58 pm |

      Susie, you are right except that Lagniappe is
      What we have in a newspaper
      The Mobile Cash Register is just a medium for coupons and Gulf Coast Newspapers is just a puffy publication for local ads. If you read Courier then you have read the Bulletin and the Onlooker
      If there is any other source of local news please tell me because there is no other place where I can get local news other than through Ripp
      Heck I even held my nose when Chuckie was writing his blog even though I knew it was the Catalyst blog
      Right now if anyone ever told me or she is a journalist Working for The Mobile cash Register or Gulf Coast Snooze would laugh in their face because it does not exist

  17. Wondering | June 9, 2020 at 5:29 pm |

    Ripp, the new lift station on Mobile Street did not have a generator and when the power went off in that part of town, it overflowed
    Who is responsible for putting in the lift station without a generator?

      The council will approve a big condo there because they are owned by developers but will not fix the sewer
      They will make us pay for their evil greed
      But since they go to church they are holy. What evil people they are

      Don’t worry, the city will just pay a fine and keep
      allowing more growth
      No need to address the overstressed sewer plant when they can pay a ticket and let them build more condos and subdivisions
      It’s great being on the council and being in real estate because You can make law and get paid for it and make even more in the deals
