Troy King Speaks out on 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."
