Alabama Governor's Office Responds to Tuesday's Rally Controversy

THE FOLLOWING IS A NEWS RELEASE FROM THE ALABAMA GOVERNOR'S OFFICE.

MONTGOMERY – Jeff Emerson, Communications Director for Governor Bob Riley, released the following statement about a rally organized by pastors against gambling in Montgomery today that was disrupted by pro-casino protestors:

"Milton McGregor and Ronnie Gilley should be ashamed.  Threatening tactics, intimidation, shouting down ministers, the use of profanity, all at a peaceful gathering designed to let people who oppose casinos to voice their concerns.  Alabamians need to pay attention to the low road tactics they use to attack those who dare disagree with them and their plans to get a no-bid casino bill through the Legislature."
