"Politics and Other Mistakes" piece on Casinos No!, questioning why the politica
"Politics and Other Mistakes" piece on Casinos No!, questioning why the political action committee campaigned against a casino, but not a racino, and suggesting a possible conflict of interest in Edie Smith Leary, campaign manager for the group. Leary, head of the consulting group at the law firm of Eaton Peabody, does legal work for the city of Bangor, which was on record as supporting racinos. In order to avoid a conflict of interest, Leary had a clause in her contract with Casinos No! stating she could not campaign against slot machines at racetracks.
