Why are we going down this path again in an effort to close the Indian casinos? Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange encouraged the National Indian Gaming Commission to take action against the Poarch Band of Creek Indian casinos in Alabama, and when the acting general counsel of the National Indian Gaming Commission informed him that Indian tribes are not bound by state definitions of the game of bingo when operating on Indian lands, Strange wants to take a lawsuit to a state court.

If the attorney general would research the past administrations he will find out that they failed in closing the Indian casinos. The law and the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act has not changed. I would think the attorney general has more important crime to fight than the Indian casinos.

This is a waste of taxpayers’ money to go through another lawsuit that is going to be thrown out of court or overturned by a federal court. Maybe Strange is trying to set the groundwork for the governor’s job at the next election. Let’s hope not.
