Hubbard trial continues, Alabama Voting App rolls out

May 25, 2016

The former chief of staff for the Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard has testified in the ethics trial of his former boss.

Josh Blades testified today that he was upset and concerned about "legal implications" after learning that language added to a 2013 budget bill could have benefited one of Hubbard's clients.

Blades said he learned later that a group that would get the work was paying Hubbard through a consulting contract. The language was stripped in conference committee.

Talladega, AL – The starter's flag has already dropped to signal the beginning of this year's race for the White House. We used the imagery of a starters flag since the world of politics and NASCAR will meet here in Alabama on Saturday. A conservative political organization will be at Talladega this weekend to persuade fans to vote. Alabama Public Radio's Maggie Martin sat down with Ned Ryun, the founder and President of American Majority, to talk about the effort.
