Controversies

Racial comments

In his 2012 book, Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative, Hubbard made a number of racial comments, including that black slavery in America "may actually have been a blessing in disguise," school integration hurt white children, and that American Christians are in a position similar to that of Germans when Hitler rose to power.[8]

Scorecards

Arkansas’s Freedom Scorecard

The Advance Arkansas Institute, an Arkansas-based nonprofit research and educational organization, released "Arkansas's Freedom Scorecard" in 2012 and 2013. The scorecard seeks to show how Arkansas legislators voted on the principles the Institute seeks to promote. It measures each state legislator in six categories, which include economic freedom, education reform, good government, personal liberty, small government and tax/budget policy. Scores range from the highest score (100%) to the lowest (0%). A higher score indicates that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Institute.[9] Hubbard received a score of 87% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 17th out of 97 members of the Arkansas House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.

Personal

Hubbard and his wife Regina have two children.
