Group Says No Gambling Money To Riley

By Alabama Public Radio

Washington DC – The Republican Governors Association is defending Governor Bob Riley.
The group says Riley did NOT receive contributions from gambling groups routed through national Republican accounts to his 2002 campaign. It says national party money sent in 2002 to Riley and the Alabama Republican Party did not come from corporate donors, including former Riley aide Michael Scanlon. R-G-A officials their campaign accounts show the contributions came exclusively from individual donors. However, media reports indicate that Scanlon's work for tribal gambling interests is under federal investigation. Riley opposed the expansion of gambling in Alabama during his campaign for governor.
