yet another republican; Alabama House Speaker Arrested on 23 Felony Charges

OPELIKA, Ala. — Powerful Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard has been arrested on felony ethics charges, accused of using public office for personal gain. Hubbard was indicted by a grand jury on 23 charges accusing him of misusing his office as speaker and his previous post as chairman of the Alabama Republican Party.

If convicted, Hubbard faces from two to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $300,000 on each count. The charges are latest corruption allegations against Alabama politicians to make headlines. The 52-year-old Republican led the GOP's takeover of the Legislature in 2010, ending 136 years of Democratic control

1. Hell, he led the 2010

republican charge to make Alabama safe once again for God fearing political grifters. Looks like he failed or crossed another grifter bigger than himself.

found guilty, let em swing. If a republican politician is dirty, they deserve everything that the law demands.

4. I say "hang 'em high"

government corruption is rampant--at all levels

Term limits would help reduce the amount of corruption.

6. Let's look at this honestly. ...

A high percentage of politicians are crooks. There are corrupt Republicans and there are corrupt Democrats.

There are two career fields that offer an excellent chance of becoming a millionaire if you have some charisma and are less than honest. One is to become a televangelist and the other is to get elected to a political office.
