Maybe TV 19 should look into Mr. Barrons years of owning Title Pawns and passed laws that allowed them to charge high monthly interest. That was what is call unethical.

Wouldn't it be reasonably easy to establish who is the actual owner of the building in question? I thought that would be a matter of public record, information at the courthouse???

Carson, is this story just a tease for revealing the owner of the building tomorrow?

I agree. Senator Barron is the one who should be investigated for corruption.People like Senator Barron are what is wrong with our government in Alabama, Career politicians who are only interested in serving themselves and are willing to destroy anyone's reputation just to stay in office. It's time for a change!

McGill does own the building. However, he just purchased it in the past few days for around $15,000. We didn't bring this up because it's not clear what was in the contract between McGill and Johnson. And neither side will comment on the specifics.

Why doesn't someone check out Lowell Barron's actions since he has been in office. See how much money he has borrowed from the state to purchase apartment complexes. It may surprise a person to find the truth of how much he has borrowed from the state and the arrangements that he borrowed it on, and how many apartment complexes he owns, along with his family under different names.

Channel 19 does speak badly about Dem's, oh no.
It was Barron that killed the vote on Obamacare.

A couple of years ago he got busted on the kisser for his smart remarks.

Notice nothing said about Raby!!!!!!

I have been looking for someone to replace Lowell Barron for years. I can not stand the man but Mr. McGill is not that man. Not only does he have this case, which I believe he is at fault, he also has a problem with how he treats his foster children. I know the family very well and can not in good faith vote for him. He has a 21 year old foster child that he has virtually kicked out because the check has stopped coming from the state. So, before you vote for this man, think about what kind of person he is. I never thought I would say this but please vote for Lowell Barron.

Concerned Citizen Dekalb: Just the name Shadrack is enough not to vote for him.

You don't know Mr. McGill very well, or you would know that he adopted his foster children. Shad is a well respected, honest, and moral man who is running for office for the "right" reasons. As a matter of fact, I think you must not know him at all.

Mr. Barron has stooped to the lowest point a politician can stoop. I don't want to hear mud slinging. I WANT TO HEAR WHAT THEY ARE PLANNING ON DOING FOR OUR GREAT COUNTRY AND OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES. Mr. Barron has lost my vote. This is a matter for the courts to decide...not to muddy up the campaign.

If Shadrack was receiving rent money that totals 80 thousand and then recentyly purchased it for 15 thous he is a d*mn thief and so is the person who "actually" owned it that sold it to him. They took this family for a ride. I have eaten at that rest. a hundred times and that building has not ever been worth 80 thous, it is a run down ole mess. We've know for years that Lowell is a snake in the grass and now Shadrack is shown himself to be no better. If Shad were honest, he would sign the bill of sale over yesterday or whenever he come to own to property and give them back a portion he stole. Both of this criminals need to be run out of town and do a write in. These Barron and Shadrack need to be horsewhipped.
Good Luck Sheila to you and your family.

She has been told not to speak about it or the ad...sounds like in the ad she did plenty of speaking. She should have left it for the courts as pitiful as the courts may be.

My guess...McGill may have bought an option on the property, which would allow him to then sell the property contingent on the completion of the option sale. Its not really an unusual type of transaction for commercial properties. McGills mistake is not getting out in front of the controversy, which may cost him the election.

Lowell Barron is a crook but he will always get elected because he brings the pork home to Dekalb co.. the same way we elect people like Sessions or Shelby who are worthless politicians but keep bringing the pork back to Bama..

I'll be voting for McGill, I'm sick of Barron a man that's been took to court several times for bounced checks and not paying the person hired to mow the grass at his rentals. A man that heald up a bill in commity which would have allowed the people of the state to opt out of Obamacare. Just say NO to Barron 24-28 yrs in office is far to long.

What I want to know WHNT is why are we not hearing this about Barron?
