Gambling bill controversy
Singleton has been accused of accepting a $25,000 payment in exchange for killing an anti-gambling bill. Senator Harri Anne Smith introduced the bill in April 2008, which would have killed the Country Crossing project by denying it funds from electronic bingo. Representatives Gilley and Massey from the Country Crossing project claimed that Smith changed her mind about the bill and contacted Massey, seeking his help. He then claims that he went to Singleton, the chair of the Tourism and Marketing Committee, to attempt to convince him to let the bill die, and that he agreed to do so for $25,000. Both Smith and Singleton deny having any contact with either Gilley or Massey.
