Well, Gov, you own this

Patrick signs casino bill into law.

With two high ranking members of government, a senator and cabinet secretary, already caught with their hands in the cookie jar, buying stocks in casino companies before pushing through legislation legalizing it, we'll see how long it will be before politicians are going to jail over this stuff.

We'll see how much worse this deal makes our situation in this state when people go broke because of it and the goverment's forced to intervene, while hundreds of local businesses go under and promised revenue never materializes. Governor Patrick - this is your legacy now, good luck with that.

You also own this. You supported the asshole.

I fought tooth and nail against it. Patrick's biggest mistake is this one and he'll have to live with it, but it doesn't make him an "asshole." Foolish and shortsighted? Sure.
