    MONTGOMERY -- A former political supporter who is suing Bob Riley wants the Alabama governor to answer questions about allegations that his 2002 campaign accepted money from a Mississippi Indian tribe with gambling interests.

    John Goff, who owns an insurance company, sued Riley, Insurance Commissioner Walter Bell and former Lt. Gov. Steve Windom in March, alleging a conspiracy to take over his business after Bell was appointed insurance commissioner. After Bell was appointed, Goff alleged that an investigation of the so-called conspiracy was stopped because it would have revealed ties between Riley and the Indians.

    Defense attorneys have filed motions in Montgomery County Circuit Court to dismiss the case, arguing the claims amount to a "thinly veiled effort to launch a political attack against Governor Riley .....

    Former Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana Vice Chairman William Worfel told a U.S. Senate panel in 2005 that Abramoff claimed the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians spent $13 million "to get the governor of Alabama elected to keep gaming out of Alabama so it wouldn't hurt ... his market in Mississippi."

    The Mississippi tribe has denied contributing any money to either Alabama gubernatorial campaign in 2002.
