Fury from Lowndes County

State Rep. James Thomas, D-Selma, let it be known on the House floor that he resented "to hell" the governor's gambling task force raid last week on a gaming hall in his district.

Last week the task force confiscated electronic nearly 200 bingo machines and more than $500,000 from a White Hall gaming hall.

Thomas said there is a legal disagreement between the state attorney general and the governor on the issue of electronic bingo, that can not be resolved by the governor going into businesses with guns.

He said he plans to get the U.S. Attorney General involved in the matter.
