Bingo!- You're Under Arrest!

Alabama casino operators and a number of state legislators have been arrested on bribery and corruption charges.  The casino operators wanted to add electronic Bingo machines to their casinos. Alas, their effort to convince the Alabama legislature to change state law to allow what amounted to slot machines in casinos stalled, So the casino operators turned to bribing legislators and apparently found some ready takers. If a judge eventually calls out B-10, that may refer to the sentences these worthy representatives of our democracy receive.
