As the Poarch Band of Creek Indians continue to traverse an array of legal filings, the most recent of which filed by Attorney General Luther Strange, legislators who represent the area are stepping in to show their support of the only Native American tribe officially recognized by the state of Alabama.
Alabama Sen. Marc Keahey, D-Grove Hill, said he appreciates what the tribe has contributed to the quality of life of his constituents.
“In my opinion, the victims of the attorney general’s actions of the past week are the citizens and taxpayers of Alabama,” Keahey said. “Nothing about this is normal in terms of common sense and whether or not it’s a waste of time.”
Keahey said Strange’s lawsuit against PCI, filed last week in an Elmore County Circuit Court, is likely nothing short of a political move for a future run at the governor’s office.
