Hubbard Being Investigated for Anti-Gay Letter
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - Carroll Hubbard is in legal hot water again, this time for allegedly sending a letter to an attorney that called her and her wife "pitifull (sic) fat, ugly lesbians."

Alisha Kay Bobo is the opposing counsel in a McCracken Family Court case, and in court, she accused Hubbard of sending the letter. When she asked him if the handwriting in the letter was his, Hubbard gave confusing answers, then didn't want to say anything else, telling the judge that he "can't remember the magic words." When the judge asked if he wanted to plead the 5th Amendment (so he would not incriminate himself), he said yes. 

The Courier-Journal says Hubbard confirmed to them that he did send the letter, calling it "an unwise decision."  He also allegedly accused Bobo of using the incident for publicity in an effort to win a newspaper contest for best local lawyer. 

McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden says Hubbard is under investigation for harassing communications. 

Hubbard, now 80, was a Congressman in 1994 when he pleaded guilty to felony charges in the House Banking Scandal. Hubbard admitted staging a burglary of his office, to make it look like records had been stolen, and to misusing over $50,000 dollars in campaign money. As part of the plea deal, he cooperated with federal investigators, who gave him the code name, "Elmer Fudd."  Hubbard did three years in prison for those charges.

In 2001, a unanimous decision by the Kentucky Bar Association board of governors against reinstating Hubbard's law license was overruled by the state Supreme Court.
