Anniston's mayor Gene Robinson is being sued for slander by one of the men who helped him gain votes from the black community.
The day after Robinson won the election in August 2008, the Anniston Star quoted him saying he "bought into the black corruption" in reference to the "Get out the Vote" effort.
Curtis Ray, one of the two people who helped Robinson get out those votes, is now suing Robinson for slander.
Robinson has issued an affidavit denying he said the remark, despite apologizing for it in a newspaper ad and an interview on Fox 6 News.
The testimony ended early today after one of the witnesses, former congressman Glen Browder, was admitted to the hospital for chest pains. He's expected to be back tomorrow, when the testimony in the case will likely wrap up.
