Ex-chair of GOP-leaning PAC Defends Fund Transfer

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- The former chair of a Republican-leaning political action committee says a PAC controlled by Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard made a transfer to his PAC days after the Legislature passed a ban on the practice -- and hours before Gov. Bob Riley signed the ban into law.

The development comes after the Alabama Democratic Party's chairman accused Republican leaders of breaking the law against PAC-to-PAC transfers.

Hubbard, R-Auburn, denies the allegation. His spokesman, Todd Stacy, says the PAC associated with Hubbard abided by the law and "disclosed every penny."

John Ross, a former state Republican Party leader who chaired the 136 Years PAC, says a $5,000 transfer from NETPAC on Dec. 20 was legal. Hubbard was listed as treasurer of NETPAC.

That transfer was made days after the House approved the PAC-to-PAC ban.
