COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Lawyers for Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard have subpoenaed a recorded phone conversation between a talk show host and a prosecutor.
That phone conversation was reportedly between Deputy Attorney General Matt Hart and talk show host Dale Jackson of WVNN.
Hubbard's lawyers say Hart said in the call that prosecutors are not acting with political motivations and that accusation demeans the grand jury.
Defense lawyers say the call shows an effort to taint the jury pool. Hubbard faces multiple felony ethics charges and has pleaded not guilty.
