SHE WAS AGAINST IT BEFORE SHE SUPPORTED IT, MONEY IS A WONDERFUL THING!!!
It looks like gambling will pass the senate this time. During the last senate race one of the differences that I pointed out between me and Senator Hassan was the over $100,000 she took from special interests. The truism is if you’re for sale the money will roll in. I do not particularly care for lobbyists in general because most of them lie. The ones I do like I respect them for telling the truth and enjoying working with them. In the last election the gambling interests placed large well placed contributions to a number of senators, ours included.
There will be a fight in the house, the house members have not been bought; just, too many of them to purchase. That fight will be interesting. In his typical limp wristed management style the governor has not made up his mind yet on which way he is going to go on supporting gambling. GIVE ME A BREAK, this issue has been floating around in Concord since last fall.
Our good senator, when she was first running claimed to be against gambling. Then she got bit by the Concord bug, took about $10,000 in gambling contributions and is now one of the big champions of making multi millionaires out of the millionaires who contributed to her by championing slot machines at the race tracks.
I suppose when one has extremely high political aspirations and forgets the people who voted her in, one needs lots of money to meet those aspirations. Personally I always thought more of you and myself than to sell out for personal or political gain.
