Speaker Hubbard’s team of PR specialists took nearly seven hours to respond to the press statement from Acting Attorney General W. Van Davis, concerning false allegations being made by Hubbard and his attorney J. Mark White.
Davis took Hubbard and White to task for their false accretions that the 23 felony charges against Hubbard are a politically motivated witch hunt with a rogue prosecution.
Davis, point-by-point, knocked down each one of the Hubbard spin machine’s outrageous accusations.
Not only did Davis catch Hubbard and White flat-footed, he landed a body blow that left White squealing like a little girl: “He’s touching me,” as one political consultant said.
White, who likes to try his cases in the media, responded by slinging a kitchen sink full of accusations back at Davis. His biggest argument boils down to Davis not putting a disclaimer on the statement saying that Hubbard was presumed innocent until proven guilty.
White also filed a motion with Lee County Circuit Judge Jacob Walker, III, with regards to alleged “media tape recording,” which one Montgomery attorney characterized as, “when caught with your pants down, point at the audience and say look over there.”
White may very well try to sue the prosecution for talking to the media, as he seems to think he is the only person allowed to do so.
White once said he was having a difficult time convincing Hubbard that the word, “speaker” was a noun and not a verb.
It would seem that White wants Davis to shut up and stop touching him.
