Mike Hubbard?received a $100,000 contribution on December 20, 2010, from Monica Cooper of 1300 County Road 77, Clanton, Alabama. Cooper?s contribution was labeled as an individual contribution by 136 Years PAC.

According to Secretary of State records, Cooper is the treasurer and Senate Majority Leader Waggoner is the chairperson of New Alabama Leadership PAC. New Alabama Leadership PAC serves as the fundraising vehicle for the Senate Republican Caucus. -- Read the whole story --> Republican Party Uses Individual Contribution to Violate PAC-to-PAC Ban | The State Column
