Troy King Speaks out on Country Crossing

STATEMENT OF ATTORNEY GENERAL TROY KING
REGARDING COUNTRY CROSSING

"This morning’s news reports brought with them increasing concerns about the actions of the governor’s task force. I was invited to join the task force on November 16, 2009. I responded and asked the governor to “provide me with the investigative materials you have collected and upon which you intend to base further actions,” so I could make informed decisions about my involvement. I also asked the governor to consult and coordinate with law enforcement, district attorneys, and my Office. Regrettably, I never received a response from the governor or Mr. Barber.

Now, the governor is apparently acting on a decision of the Alabama Supreme Court that is not yet final and which, contrary to his public statements, does not say that all electronic bingo machines are illegal. I can only offer the governor my advice, which I have done. I cannot force him to take it."

    I was on-line last night requesting information on Riley's "raid" from the office of the person who is running against you. I received a response informing me you, Troy King, are the person responsible for the actions of this week, because you have been telling folks the Casino was legal. (I don't really believe that, and I told them this) My primary question to the powers of the Governor's office is: why has Houston County, Mark Culver, and Country Crossing been so harrased, Three other casinos have been operating for some time, they have not been raided. Can anyone give me an honest answer to my question? I'll bet you can, Sir. My e-mail hjhl0625@msn.com my phone 334-983-5704. I am no one special, I support you, I am 70 years old, born and raised here, raised four boys here - love this area. I just want to know why Bob Riley is embarrasing lower Alabama. Thank you for your time. Helen Loff
