Yet another casino drive

The latest proposal for a Chicago casino is just “the same old thing — fleece the public,” according to the Task Force to Oppose Gambling in Chicago.

The proposal is part of a plan by former U.S. Representatives Denny Hastert and Glenn Poshard for a state capital budget.

“With a recession hurting the economy, political leaders can only think of more ways to hurt people in need,” said Doug Dobmeyer of the Task Force.

He noted that efforts to bring gambling to Chicago have failed for 19 years.  The Task Force called on the City Council to sponsor a referendum on the Chicago casino proposal.
