LEE COUNTY: The special Grand Jury investigating public corruption in Montgomery is currently in session in Lee County. State Representative Paul Lee's truck is parked at the Lee County Courthouse.
Lee, when asked before if he has testified before Grand Jury, is reported to have said that he would never be before the Grand Jury. While we did not see Lee go into the Grand Jury room, we can report the Grand Jury is taking testimony and Lee is at the courthouse in Lee County.
Lee has been a close ally of Speaker Mike Hubbard. In Lee's election four years ago some of his campaign income and expenses were from Hubbard controlled sources.
We can not say that the Grand Jury is after Speaker Hubbard. However, we can say everyone in Montgomery associated with Hubbard has been sweating big time.
UPDATED @ 2:46 PM On Saturday
In reference to the comment associated with Lee: when asked before if he has testified before Grand Jury, is reported to have said that he would never be before the Grand Jury.
A clarification to the comment: Lee was asked a while back about his testimony before a grand jury. Someone lied about his testifying. Lee told a reporter ( not me ) that "he had not nor had he ever been before that time".
Lee is not a suspect, only a factual witness. Lee is not a target of the Grand Jury.
He did testify to the Lee County Grand Jury on Friday. We have not and will not ask what his testimony concerned.
