Description

The Anniston Star series chronicles how massive amounts of money changed hands in bingo parlors even though the Alabama Constiution doesn't permit games of chance. Alabama has not raised taxes by sidestepping legal restrictions to schemes of wealth for big operators who return a pittance to the public treasury. An amendment to the state's basic law opened bingo to the opportuntists who could feed off the obsession of players. Elected officlas, law enforcemnet officers and a state senator all were invloved.
