Oklahoma attorney general jumps into Kialegee casino dispute

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is jumping into the controversy over the casino proposed by the Kialegee Tribal Town.

Pruitt is asking the Obama administration to release all documents related to the Red Clay Casino. He wants to know if anyone involved broke state law or the Class III gaming compact.

"Construction on the site has begun, and potential legal disputes have arisen," Pruitt said in a letter to the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the National Indian Gaming Commission.

The tribe wants to build the casino on an Indian allotment that is held in trust for two members of the Muscogee Nation. Residents and officials in Broken Arrow are against the project.
