MONTGOMERY: In the words of a former Dothan Police Captain “coincidences do not just happen”.
The following, according to political operatives, would be probably referred to as a “coincidence”.
The evidence points to the following timeline:
July 15, 2010 Donation from Poarch Creek Indians to the Republican State Leadership in the amount of $ 100,000.00
July 22, 2010 Expenditure of the Republican State Leadership Committee ( Alabama PAC ) to the Alabama Republican Party in the amount of $ 100,000.00
July 29, 2010 Contribution from Republican State Leadership to Alabama PAC in the amount of $ 100,000.00
August 4, 2010 Expenditure from Alabama Republican Party to Alabamians for Luther Strange, Inc. in the amount of $ 100,000.00
August 4, 2010 Contribution report of Candidate Luther Strange where he received a contribution in the amount of $ 100,000.00 from the Alabama Republican Party.
CLEAR POINT: July 15, 2010 a donation from the Poarch Creek Indians in the amount of $ 100,000.00 to Alabama Republicans and on August 4, 2010 a $ 100,000.00 donation to Luther Strange for Attorney General of Alabama.
FAST FORWARD TO 2012
July 11, 2012 Poarch Creek Indians announced the expansion of the Creek Casino in Wetumpka Alabama in the amount of $ 246 million dollars.
July 15, 2012 Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange and others run a full page color advertisement in the Sunday edition of the Montgomery Advertiser congratulating the Creek Casino on their expansion and expenditures of $ 246 million dollars and how great it is they are a part of the community.
July 24, 2012 Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange, his legal advisor Sonny Regan and State Senator Bryan Taylor all meet together at the Alabama Attorney General’s Office in Montgomery. Under the Bob Riley Administration Regan was Governor Riley’s Chief Legal Advisor and Bryan Taylor was Riley’s Policy Director. On 08/30/2010 the Alabama Republican Party contributed $ 25,000.00 to the Bryan Taylor For Senate Campaign. Taylor is now a Alabama Senator.
July 24, 2012 Someone under the command of Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange traveled to Orange Beach Alabama and located a Houston County Circuit Judge who was in Orange Beach at the Alabama Judge’s Conference and obtained his signature on a search warrant for Center Stage in Houston County Alabama.
July 25, 2012 Agents from the Alabama Attorney General Office, Deputies from the Houston County Sheriff Department, agents from the Alabama Bureau of Investigation which operates under the direction of the Alabama Department of Public Safety, executed a search warrant and took all of the equipment of Center Stage, closing the doors of the business.
July 25, 2012 Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange and agents of the Alabama Attorney General Office, a Houston County Circuit Court Judge, Houston County Sheriff Department Deputies, and members of the Alabama Bureau of Investigation stopped 100 to 140 people from their job at Center Stage in Houston County Alabama.
July 26, 2012 Alabama Governor Robert Bentley was in Abbeville Alabama on his “road to economic success” in creating jobs for the people of Alabama.
NOTE: When elected Alabama Governor Robert Bentley said that resources of the Alabama Department of Public Safety would not be used in raids. On July 25, 2012 resources from the Alabama Department of Public Safety in the form of the Alabama Bureau of Investigation was used in the raid and execution of search warrant on Center Stage in Houston County Alabama.
NOTE: When Robert Bentley was a candidate for Alabama Governor he visited Dobb’s BBQ and wanted the people of Houston County to vote for him. The people of Houston County honored that request. A man which stood a ZERO chance for Governor won the election. He will not put legislation before the Alabama Legislature allowing the people of this state to settle this issue once and for all.
NOTE: According to the Alabama Supreme Court, the Governor of the State, which is now Robert Bentley, is the man in charge and not the Alabama Attorney General. The responsibility rests on solely on the shoulder of Governor/Dr. Robert Bentley.
CONCLUSION: Review the documents and judge for yourself.
