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."
