Baby steps

An Alabama State Representative has asked his attourney general to look into money that was funneled into the state, in particular to Ralph Reed's firm, to fight a proposed lottery. The money was initially reported to have come from a Washington DC group, but it has recently been revealed that that group was just a channel for money from Indian casinos.

According to Rep. Hinshaw this is a violation of Alabama state law which prohibits making donations in someone else's name.

The story is here.

For those who don't know, Ralph Reed, former head of the Christian Coalition and now running to the post of Lieutenant Governer of Georgia, is smack dab in the middle of the Indian Gaming scandal that is threatening to sink certain members of the Republican party.

Bull Moose tends to be the go-to source for information on this particular scandal, with this post being the most recent on the topic that I've found.
