Cam Newton Investigation Also Targets Dog Track Owner And Auburn Booster

The Cam Newton Investigation yielded a strange tangent this afternoon. TMZ is reporting a bizarre new angle to the Cam Newton investigation:

According to sources connected to the probe … FBI agents looking into the Newton recruiting controversy are also asking about Milton McGregor — a dog track owner arrested last month for allegedly bribing Alabama politicians to vote pro gambling.

McGregor is the owner of Victoryland Dog Track and Casino, and was arrested on October 11th of this year on federal bribery charges along with four state senators in Alabama’s biggest political scandal in recent memory. McGregor also donated $1 million to Auburn for the construction of an arena at the school in 2008.

No direct link between McGregor and the Newton case is made in the report. If there is anything to divine from this, it is that the FBI is pursuing an investigation in both cases, and is probing to see if—just in case—there happens to be a link between the two. The association is at this point is just that: an association the FBI is making by geography and school, albeit one that is anything but flattering to Auburn in any sense of the word.
