TUSKEGEE— “It should be clear now to everyone, that the citizens of the majority black Macon County cannot get justice in the State of Alabama.”



These are the words of legendary Tuskegee Mayor Johnny Ford. The Mayor has been the most vocal opposition to the closing of VictoryLand in Shorter, Alabama. He has accused Republican party of being “bought by the Poarch Creek Indians.” He says that the GOP elites have, “taken millions of dollars...in exchange for their shutting down VictoryLand.”


While the ALGOP in 2010 did hide the fact that they took campaign contribution from the Poarch Creek there we have found no evidence of an explicated Quid Pro Quo and the closing of Victoryland.


Ford says that in Macon County the closing of VictoryLand has cost, “thousands of jobs, and millions of dollars for our community.”


On the day that the Attorney General raided VictoryLand, Ford tried in vain to stage a non-violent protest with the aim of being arrested and therefore having an opportunity to make his case in court. Of the event Ford said, “State Representative Pebblin Warren and I even tried to get arrested so that we could get into court, however the State Troopers, obviously following orders from the Attorney General, refused to arrest us, even though we crossed their barrier line to VictoryLand, thus strategically refusing to grant us that opportunity.”
