Maryland's embarrassing slots giveaway
Gov. Martin O'Malley and Maryland's legislators should be embarrassed at the gambling bill they are sending to voters this November. In their rush to move ahead with an expansion of Maryland's gambling program before the current one is fully up and running, they adopted a plan that amounts to a massive give-away to casino owners with little chance for public benefit. Voters should reject this proposal and tell the legislature not to try again until it can show that it is acting in the interests of the people, not the gambling lobby.
