Political clash sinks Massachusetts casino-gambling plan

Christian Science Monitor,  Friday, March 21, 2008 at 5:55:46 PM

Massachusetts soundly rejected casino gambling Thursday night in a House vote that had more to do with politics than with gambling itself, analysts say.

While gambling interests have seen a temporary setback, Gov. Deval Patrick has suffered an embarrassing defeat in his first major legislative initiative.

Governor "Patrick is the big loser here, in the sense that politically he really needed a victory," says Thomas Whalen, professor of social science at Boston University. "He comes across here as being a real amateur. This was his first big test as a governor and, frankly, he failed it."

By a 108-to-46 vote, the House rejected his proposal to allow three resort casinos and ban Internet gambling in the state. the source
