Paranoia and mistrust have swept the Alabama legislature in recent months, aiding to concerns of voters in electing Democrats, including Vivian Figures. Although she remains unaffected, dozens of members of Alabama’s legislature have been issued subpoenas in recent months, nearly 1/3 of the body, mostly Democrats.

The subpoenas are in regards to bribery and corruption charges involving the state’s college system after former Chancellor Roy Johnson plead guilty to funneling $18 Million worth of state money to contractors in exchange for kickbacks.

Vivian Figures does not appear to be associated with the investigation and has not been issued a subpoena, however her association with the hotbed of corruption does not aid in her bid for Republican Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat.
