Testimony resumed Thursday afternoon in the State House vote-buying case, when the jury heard wire tapped recording of VictoryLand owner Milton McGregor telling another casino operator that it was urgent they get a bill through the Alabama Legislature in order to protect casinos from state efforts to shut them down.

“Right now we’re out there butt naked,” McGregor told Greenetrack CEO Nat Winn on a call recorded by federal wiretaps.

McGregor told Winn that getting bingo on an upcoming referendum ballot, “will slow the court down from —- us.”
