Jury selection in the State vs Michael G. Hubbard began Monday, with opening arguments to begin on May 24 or 25. The trial is expected to last approximately a month, according to statements made at the last hearing.
If Hubbard, who is charged with 23 felony counts of public corruption, is found innocent, the monster, who is Speaker Hubbard, will scorch the Earth with his vengeance and retribution, and our State will never be rid of his corrupting influence. If convicted, there will be a brief moment to change rules, institutions and policies, that will prevent men like Hubbard from harming our State by using government for craven, personal gain. If convicted, there will be an opening to stop the practices that have enabled Hubbard and his cronies to thrive.
