A former U.S. Representative from Kentucky was caught practicing law even though his law license was suspended for lying about sending a hateful letter to another attorney.

This past April, the Kentucky Supreme Court suspended Carroll Hubbard’s license to practice law.

He had been accused of sending a letter in 2017 to attorney Alisha Bobo and her wife where he drew an arrow at a picture of them and called them “PITIFULL [sic], FAT, UGLY, LESBIANS.”

Bobo said that the letter was “very disappointing that someone, a grown person such as Mr. Hubbard — someone I previously respected — would go there.”

She didn’t make it public until 2018, though, when she found herself working on a visitation case where Hubbard was opposing counsel. She told the court and asked that he be removed from the case.

Hubbard said, under oath, that he did not send the letter. By February 2019, he admitted to sending the letter and apologized to the Bobos. He also admitted to filing a Judicial Conduct Commission complaint against the judge in that case just because he was mad that the letter was brought up.

He is currently running for the Kentucky House of Representatives as a Republican, even though he was a Democrat when he was in the U.S. House.
