The Godfather of Alabama

Just finished reading the summer edition of the Landmark Legal Foundations magazine. It says "we are going after the Godfather of Alabama".

The Godfather is Paul Hubbert (aka Pope Paul), the Executive Secretary of the Alabama Education Association (AEA) union and his accomplice Joe Reed (aka Mr Democrat), the Associate Executive Secretary.

Charges include:

* "uses hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax-exempt teacher's dues to finance vast unreported political activities"

* "They arranged at least one no-show state job for an AEA-friendly state senator"

* "apparently bribed a different state senator with a campaign contribution"

* "They also used their positions to funnel union funds to their own unsuccessful campaigns for public office"

The Landmark Legal Foundation can be found on the internet at http://www.landmarklegal.org/. Please contribute to them if you can.
