Hubbard’s Storm PAC Not Even a Drizzle

MONTGOMERY—The once, much vaunted Storming the State House PAC, a tool Speaker Mike Hubbard used as a carrot or a stick, had zero contributions according to its year-end FCPA filing.

(See report here.)

Hubbard, once referred to the PAC as his “incumbent protection” fund. He also promised the PAC would reward House members who supported him for his re-election as Speaker. It now appears Hubbard’s legal troubles are inhibiting his ability to raise funds for reward or punishment.

According to the report, the Mary Sue McClurkin for Chairman Committee received $5000 from Storm PAC’s meager funds, for her bid to become Chair of the Alabama Republican Party. McClurkin was bested by Terry Lathan, despite Hubbard’s support.

Rep. Steve French and Chris Hines were both given $2000 from Hubbard’s PAC. Newman and Associates, LLC., was paid $1000, and the accounting firm BNH Accounting LLC., received $200.

Of the $12,862.46, cash-on-hand, Hubbard spent $8,731.89, leaving an ending balance of $4,130.57.

The PAC’s inability to raise campaign cash may further indicate big money donors have finally abandoned Mike Hubbard.

Hubbard will pay $1,000 per month for the next 17 years to cover his fines, court costs and other fees owed to the state.


The committee will begin actually crafting the new legislation in the new year, just before the start of the new legislative session.


Hubbard, originally sentenced to four years for violating ethics laws, has been in the custody of the ADOC since September 2020.


The challenge to Alabama's law originated from a dispute related to the Mike Hubbard public corruption trial.
