Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange has filed a complaint to block VictoryLand’s application for a liquor license, saying that proprietors’ plan to reopen with electronic bingo constitutes criminal activity.
VictoryLand representatives said Strange has no basis to block the license and that his actions won’t delay their plans to reopen VictoryLand before the end of the year.
Strange filed the complaint late Friday.
“I am deeply concerned that any grant of a liquor license to this operation will be used to perpetuate the kind of criminal gambling activity we have seen in previous iterations of so-called ‘electronic bingo’ at this and other locations,” Strange wrote in the letter to the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control board
