More than the Roulette wheel ready to spin in New York

           A spicy June 6, 2012 New YorkTimes editorial titled “The Governor and the Committee” questions Governor Andrew Cuomo’s enthusiasm for an expansion of casino gambling.  As he ran for office in 2010, says the editorial, the Governor made no mention of casinos in the eight books of ideas he presented then as his priorities.
            Could the change be influenced by more than $2 million donated to a Governor Cuomo cause by gambling interests?
            Here again a public relations stalwart is ready.
            “Though his spokesman,” the New York Times says in the editorial, “Mr. Cuomo has strongly denied that there is any connection between the gambling donations and his enthusiasm for legalizing Las Vegas-style casinos.  The spokesman said the governor had been considering ways to manage and expand gambling in New York for months before the industry’s donations.”
            So there.
