MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Two contract lobbyists whose clients
include Victoryland casino owner Milton McGregor have appeared
before a federal grand jury in Montgomery investigating allegations
of possible vote buying on a bill to legalize electronic bingo.

Lobbyists Tom Coker and John Teague said they did not testify
Tuesday but were called to verify records.

Media consultant Rick Heartsill, who said he does work for
McGregor, also appeared before the grand jury to verify records.

He said he provided the information requested.

The three were among the first of what is expected to be a
series of lobbyists and legislators to appear before the grand
jury.

Allegations of possible vote buying by supporters of the bill
surfaced after it passed the Senate last month. It later died in
the House.
