On Thursday, April 13th, Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall discussed the Jefferson County bingo hall raids with ALCAP President and CEO Greg Davis on Priority Talk Radio. Much of the gambling that occurs in Alabama is illegal, and Steve Marshall is taking steps to curb it.
“The Supreme Court, on multiple occasions, has made it abundantly clear that electronic bingo––which is basically the theory that these businesses use to stay open––is something that’s not accepted. It’s simply gambling, and gambling is not allowed in the Alabama Constitution,” Marshall said.
Steve Marshall and Greg Davis discuss the number of bingo halls that were shut down, the importance of enforcing the laws that are in place, and much more. Listen to the whole conversation here:
