Commission Warning: Proposed Gambling Expansion Into Chicago Will Attract 'The Outfit'

The Chicago Crime Commission is warning Gov. Pat Quinn that if he signs the gambling expansion legislation now on his desk, organized crime will be involved, according to CBS Chicago.

As WBBM Newsradio 780′s Mike Krauser reports, Crime Commission chairman J.R. Davis says it is beyond his comprehension that the Illinois House and Senate both passed the bill, which he calls “dangerous.”

“Federal prosecutors,” he says, “should plan for a constant stream of federal corruption indictments against government officials, gambling operators and members of the Crime Syndicate.”

Davis notes that the bill creates the Chicago Casino Development Authority, separate from the Illinois Gaming board, which, he says, is known for its integrity.

He adds that the move essentially puts Chicago gaming in untested and most likely politically-connected hands.
