AG Urges Prosecution Over Seminole Gaming in Fla

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) McCollum sent the U.S. District Attorney's office in Tampa a letter Wednesday urging action. Since this summer, the tribe has been offering Las Vegas-style slot machines and card games at its casino in Hollywood under an agreement struck with Gov. Charlie Crist.

The state Supreme Court has since struck down that compact, but
the games continue. McCollum says the fact that the tribe is
expanding blackjack to its Tampa and Immokalee casinos shows it
doesn't respect the law.

Neither the tribe nor the U.S. Attorney's office responded
immediately Thursday to messages requesting comment.
