Hubbard alleges dirty tricks against him

AL.com reports: Mike Hubbard, speaker of the Alabama House of Representatives, is calling for help to get to the bottom of what he says are harassing phone calls, made all over Alabama.

The calls are not just going out to people in his East Alabama district, but also to people around the state. Hubbard says the calls consist of a scratchy recording of one of his campaign advertisements, but the ad was obviously recorded by some handheld device. ...

Hubbard himself says he has received the calls about 40 times. Hubbard believes the calls may be trying to irritate voters before his re-election effort on June 3. Hubbard, a Republican, faces Sandy Toomer in the GOP primary for the District 79 nomination. ...

So Hubbard has filed a complaint with the FBI and the Federal Communications Commission. Hubbard said pre-recorded phone calls made to cellphones violate federal law. And state electioneering needs to have a disclaimer too, Hubbard said. -- Speaker Mike Hubbard seeks answers on harassing phone calls | AL.com
