ENTERPRISE, Ala. (AP) -- Indicted state Rep. Barry Moore of Enterprise says the $25,000 he received from a political action committee operated by the House speaker is appropriate and he expects to receive more.
Campaign finance reports show Storm PAC operated by House Speaker Mike Hubbard donated $10,000 to Moore's campaign on April 23, the day before Moore was charged with perjury and giving false statements to a Lee County grand jury investigating possible government corruption. Then the PAC donated $15,000 to Moore one week later. The same day Moore used $25,000 in campaign money to retain the law firm of former Attorney General Bill Baxley.
Moore told the Dothan Eagle the Storm PAC contribution is one of many donations he has received since his indictment and he expects more from Storm PAC.
