Alabama Legislators Received Subpoenas

Tuesday, February 6, 2018


Some Alabama legislators have received subpoenas for campaign finance records in what appears to be an attorney general's review of campaign spending.  At least 2 lawmakers confirmed they had received subpoenas from the attorney general's office for campaign spending records -- but expressed confidence they had done nothing wrong.


While the direction of the review is unclear, it appears to be focused on whether lawmakers followed state law in how they spent campaign funds, including if purchases made with campaign-paid credit cards were all related to the campaign and properly reported.


The review comes five months after a prominent Republican lawmaker pleaded guilty to charges related to using campaign money for personal expenses.
