TROY KING DISPLAYS WEAK
LEADERSHIP IN ADDRESSING GAMBLING
The president of the Christian Coalition of Alabama said he is "very
disappointed with the lack of tenacity and leadership" that Attorney
General Troy King has shown in addressing gambling across the state.
In a letter to the attorney general, Giles said he has had Christian
Coalition members, preachers and others asking him why more isn't being
done to stop the rapid expansion of gambling in the state.
TROY KING FAILS TO ACTION TO STOP GAMBLING
Debate Stirs in Ala. Over Best Way to Reduce Gambling
Alabama Attorney General Troy King and the head of Christian
Coalition of Alabama have traded criticism on how to best reduce
gambling in the state.
The Coalition president said instead of filing a lawsuit against a
bingo hall 20 miles west of Montgomery and allowing it to remain open
during litigation, King should have shut it down, putting the burden on
the accused to prevent the action.
"In my view this operation should have been immediately raided,
the doors closed, the machines impounded, criminal penalties enforced
and the defendants forced to seek their own injunction to reopen," Giles
wrote. According to the Associated Press, Giles stated in the letter
written to King last Friday that "I have ignored my passionate feelings
about this situation because of our friendship, but as president of the
CCA I must be honest, I am very disappointed with the lack of tenacity
and leadership that has been shown in bringing a halt to a

THE POLITICALLY CORRECT RECORD OF TROY KING
a. FAILS TO ENFORCE LAWS ON ABORTION.

of illegal aliens who have flooded Alabama, taking away our jobs. No

d. WEAK ON PORNOGRAPHY. Where is the law enforcement and
leadership to take action against those who illegally pedal Porn. Not
since the days of Jimmy Evans and Charlie Graddick has Alabama had an
Attorney General who took active action to shut down pornography.
e. WEAK ON TOBACCO. Troy King follows his mentor Bill Pryor in
being cozy to Tobacco Companies. While 30 state Attorney Generals signed
a "Anti Smoking Pledge", Troy King refuses. Troy King declined to add
his name to an effort led by 30 state attorney generals to urge
Hollywood to put anti-smoking announcements at the beginning of films.
It is a know fact that the Tobacco settlement money, under liberal Bill
Pryor, that Alabama got was less money than other states. Troy King is
apparently following the trend of being cozy to the tobacco companies.

Justice Bernard Harwood, a Republican who is retiring. Murdock will face

Several lobbyists for business organizations attended Murdock's

to ousted Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore and the candidate who defeated
Brown in her re-election bid for the Supreme Court last year.
Tom Parker, Alabama Supreme Court Justice, said Murdock was one of
the attorneys who successfully defended Moore when he was a circuit judge
in Gadsden and was being sued over displaying a homemade plaque of the Ten
Commandments in his courtroom. "He just has bona fide evangelical legal
credentials," Parker said.

STOP HIRING ILLEGAL ALIENS, SEE YA'
BILL BY MO BROOKS
Madison County Commissioner Mo Brooks proposed the Stop Employment
of Illegal Aliens Act (or as Brooks calls it the "See Ya" act). The
proposal would have blocked the employment of illegal aliens.
In announcing his bill, Brooks referenced the August shooting of
Huntsville police officer Daniel Golden by an illegal immigrant, and a
number of fatal wrecks caused by illegal immigrants. Read more at:

ALABAMA SECRETARY OF STATE ISSUES
GUIDANCE ENCOURAGING COUNTY REGISTRARS TO REGISTER ILLEGAL ALIENS TO VOTE
Alabama to Register Illegals to Vote!
This is incredible. Alabama's Secretary of State Nancy Worley (a
Democrat) is telling the county registrars to register people to vote,
even if they are not United States citizens. You can read about this at:
The Suppressed Blog. by Brad Taylor
MO BROOKS comments:
Amendment 579 of the Alabama Constitution gives the right to vote to
United States citizens. Nancy Worley's instruction that registrars may not
make further inquiry about a prospective voter's nationality undermines
the ability of registrars to properly determine whether a voter applicant
is a U.S. citizen and opens a Pandora's box of problems.
It also creates a risk that votes by legal and illegal aliens may
determine the outcome of otherwise close elections in Alabama and
encourages illegal aliens to obtain voter registration cards if for no
other reason than to obtain evidence of citizenship that can be used for
