MONTGOMERY—Judge sides with state in Rep. Barry Moore case, the court documents also reveal for the first time that Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard is under criminal investigation.
Lee County Circuit Court Judge Walker, has rule against Moore’s attorney’s request to dismiss the felony case against the troubled lawmaker.
Judge Walker also found that acting Attorney General Van Davis, along with Matt Hart and William Duffy have authority to conduct the Grand Jury investigation.
In perhaps the most revealing element of the Judge’s ruling is the fact that Speaker Hubbard is the central figure in the Lee County investigation.
Hubbard and his white collar defense attorney J.Mark White have constantly denied or spun any hint that Hubbard was the key figure in the investigation.
Now, the actual letter granting Davis his powers show that Hubbard, has been the subject of the investigation all along.
