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.

    Do Politicians ever wonder Why their Constituents Loose Respect For Them? Probably Not Because The People Are Considered Last! Just Look at the Dysfunction of Washington D.C. for the last Five Years,Lobbyist and Special Interest Groups Receive much more Consideration than "We The People"!
