Joe Hubbard asks AG Luther Strange for opinion on contribution received by candidate Luther Strange

AL.com reports: Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange's Democratic challenger, state Rep. Joe Hubbard, has requested an attorney general's opinion about a campaign donation the attorney general's campaign accepted, but later returned. ...

On Wednesday, Hubbard requested an opinion to clarify whether the campaign donation transfer violated campaign finance reforms the Alabama Legislature passed in 2010, commonly called the "PAC-to-PAC ban."

Those reforms were meant to end transfers between PACs that political donors and candidates had used for decades to obscure the source campaign cash.

If the letter Strange's campaign wrote to the RAGA Alabama PAC is correct, and no violation of the law occurred, it could mean that there is a loophole in the law. -- Did a donation to Luther Strange break the law? AG's opponent asks for AG's opinion | AL.com
