A candidate for the Alabama House of Representatives said he felt threatened to vacate his campaign or an economic development project for Enterprise could be killed.
Material obtained by The Enterprise Ledger includes phone conversations recorded between State Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) and Republican Primary candidate Josh Pipkin of Enterprise.
The conversations occurred in June 2013. When Pipkin questions Moore if the “speaker” would really cost Enterprise the potential jobs the project would land, Moore said Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard (R-Auburn) is “furious” that a member of his own executive committee would be challenging Moore. Moore added, “Speaker Hubbard told me himself, ‘I will bring holy hell down on (Pipkin’). That was (sic) his exact words.”
