What’s a convicted felon to do while out on bond?
If you’re the disgraced felon, and former Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard, you offer to be “the voice” of products and services. In a letter widely distributed to media companies, Hubbard wrote, “Performing voice-overs for various projects has been one of my favorite and most enjoyable jobs during my career in collegiate sports and broadcasting.”
Hubbard, who stands convicted of 12 felony counts of public corruption, sees his voice as an asset that commercial producers will find appealing. “Producers describe my voice as compelling, expressive, intense and professional…the demos on the website accurately demonstrate my range,” said Hubbard. “Because I have my own professional broadcast studio, turnaround time is extremely fast.”
Hubbard’s appeal before the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals has been postponed several times due to the over 500 motions filed in his criminal proceedings.
His Mercedes E250 with House of Representatives Decal attached has been spotted, parked outside the Business Council of Alabama (BCA), where cohort Billy Canary still sits at the helm. The BCA, the organization that saw a Vice President and Canary himself in the middle of the criminal case against Hubbard still seems to have a place in its heart for Hubbard.
In his plea for business Hubbard says, “When your company has current or future projects that require voice over talent, I would greatly appreciate your consideration.”
