The fight over Question 7, Maryland’s gambling expansion referendum, was not just the most expensive campaign in state history. It was also the most disingenuous. MGM, which stood to benefit from the addition of table games, spent millions convincing Marylanders it would create jobs and fund schools and whiten teeth. Penn National Gaming, which stood to lose out on the deal, spent millions convincing Marylanders it would increase poverty and suicide and crime.
Well, now that gambling expansion is here, and a sixth casino will be built in Prince George’s County, Penn National Gaming figured they might as well make a bid on the location. MGM is their likely rival.
I hate this.
