State Sen. Scott Beason has testified that indicted state Sen. Harri Ann Smith told him he could get about $500,000 in campaign contributions from Country Crossing developer Ronnie Gilley and other gambling interests if he would support pro-gambling legislation.
Beason said Smith made the comment to him as they were leaving a dinner meeting with Gilley in March 2009 in Montgomery. Beason said he told Smith that they didn't need to be talking about that because it involved getting campaign contributions in return for an official action.
Beason is the first witness in the trial of nine defendants, including Smith, who are accused of buying and selling votes on pro-gambling legislation.
