ALABAMA - A circuit court judge ruled Monday that electronic bingo machines are illegal and all casinos operating the machines in Walker County must be closed. The decision by Judge Robert Vance has set off a political fire storm.

Governor Bob Riley supports the ruling but will have little to do with the issue because he is term limited.

Ron Sparks, a Gubernatorial candidate, has lashed out. "Judge Vance's ruling that bingo operations of Walker County are illegal, underscores the urgent need for a statewide approach to address the fastest growing industry in the state, gambling," he said.

"I am the only candidate, Democrat or Republican, who has pledged to fight for a statewide gaming commission, statewide licensing and regulation, and taxing casinos to fund education and Medicaid," Sparks said in a statement.
"I would allow the voters of each individual county the right to decide if gaming is allowed in their county.
