Lottery officials are coming to Alabama...

Gov. Robert Bentley’s advisory council on gambling will hear from leaders of lotteries in two states on Thursday.

Rose Hudson, president and CEO of the Louisiana Lottery Corporation, and Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery, will speak to the council, which is meeting for the third time.

Bentley formed the advisory council to study gambling issues and laws. He did that after his plan for a state lottery to support the state budget failed during a special session.

The council is to report its findings to the governor and Legislature in January.

Poarch Band of Creek Indians Vice Chairman Robert McGhee spoke to the councilat its last meeting, along with gambling opponents Joe Godfrey of the Alabama Citizens Action Program and Les Bernal, national director of Stop Predatory Gambling.

Oh good.


Cross Fit CEO’s get into to a fight over soda taxes

The fitness giant CrossFit is turning to K Street in its fight against soda companies, hiring the Podesta Group.

The company and its founder and CEO, Greg Glassman, have been waging “war” against -soda-makers, including their reported involvement in funding health studies.

“We’re in a holy war with Big Soda,” Glassman told a crowd at a gym in California earlier this year. “It’s killing this country’s health.”

The company’s contract with Podesta Group — which lists David Marin, former staff director to the House Oversight Committee, as the lobbyist on the account — will deal with “oversight of conflict of interest rules and regulations related to academic research funded by government agencies,” according to disclosure forms. -LegiStorm first reported the hire.

There is a problem with this…
