A state senator who helped the FBI with its investigation of Statehouse corruption is back on the witness stand for the third day in Montgomery.
A defense lawyer for casino owner Milton McGregor is cross-examining Republican Sen. Scott Beason about introducing legislation to shut down all gambling in Alabama at the same time he was working with the FBI on its investigation in early 2010. Defense attorney Bobby Segall asked Beason if his bill was designed to close the doors at McGregor's VictoryLand casino and dog track in Shorter, and Beason said it was.
Segall maintains Beason wanted to hurt McGregor financially because he gave campaign contributions to Democrats.
Defense attorneys say they expect Beason to be on the witness stand all day.
