Alabama's attorney general has subpoenaed records from the state Republican Party showing more than $800,000 in party money was paid to an Auburn printing company while one of its owners, House Speaker Mike Hubbard, was serving as the party chairman.

 

The records sought by the attorney general include a party audit of 2010 campaign spending, which the party made public Monday. Hubbard says he's glad the public can see the report because he's been seeking its release since October, but he's sorry it took the attorney general's involvement to get it released.

 

The financial report found that the party paid $83,524 directly to Craftmasters in Auburn and a party contractor paid $752,262 to Craftmasters. Party Chairman Bill Armistead says the party steering committee didn't know Craftmasters was a subcontractor.
