MONGTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - Out of Montgomery, questions have risen regarding a political contribution for Governor Riley.
Former Lieutenant Governor Steve Windom tells the associated press he was asked to contribute money to the governor's political action committee that is fighting private bingo casinos.
Windom is a lobbyist for Indians operating federally protected bingo casinos in the state. He made a $10,000 contribution to the PAC, but says he was not told what the money would be used for.
Riley's communications director said it is "ridiculous" to think the governor is doing anything to help gambling interests.
