Riley tells King to stay out of task force investigations

By Staff
Gov. Bob Riley fired another round Thursday in his fight with Attorney General Troy King over the state's task force on illegal gambling.
Riley said in a statement that he has directed King to stop "any effort to director or interfere" with the investigations and prosecutions undertaken by the task force.
Last week King said he was taking over authority of the task force and asked its leader John Tyson Jr. to step aside.
