The following stories are part of an ongoing collection of articles researching the possibility of public corruption within the State of Alabama.
While these articles do not make a judgement, per se, on the illegality of an act, they do record what may be a pattern and practice that appears suspect.
Public corruption is a fatal infection which affects our entire society. It not only endangers our government, but our entire American way of life.
Those who use the power entrusted to them by the people to enrich themselves and their confederates are the worst kind of criminals. They steal from our schools, our neighborhoods, our public projects and our pockets. Worst of all, they betray the sacred trust that good government is founded upon.
“Woe to you Scribes and Pharisees, pretenders, who are like white tombs, which from the outside appear lovely, but from within are full of the bones of the dead and all corruption!”
We promise to follow the trail of public corruption wherever it leads, no party, friend nor foe will deter our efforts.
It is incumbent on the free press to find and chronicle all available information on public corruption.
It is our sincere goal to expose those who betray the public trust and shine a light into the dark corners of politics. With this in mind we submit this continuing investigation into Stealing the Statehouse.
