How in the world can a person elected by less than 7,000 voters control the State.

DeLeo is an example of whats wrong with America.

He like Peloci in the US House has way too much power.

Just because he has Wonderland and Suffolk race tracks in his distrist he can dictate what the whole State can do or not do.

Shame on the Representitives that play as pawns in this power play.

This is what you get with one party rule.

Absolute Power Corrupts absolutely and DeLeo is CORRUPT.

Shame on us for putting up with this madness!!!

Hopefully the Governor will put this fatso in his place!!

Governor Duval Patrick and the legislature have agreed on everything except how many race tracks can have slot machines.

That's it. Great job Duval!

The patrick-bashing press make it appear like there is a major disagreement here.

Countryclub Charlie Baker was never in favor of any casino bill.

The Governor will not put De Leo in his place, it is my opinion that he wanted him to take Di Masi's place in order to get the casinos in so the Governor himself would not look like he lied to us when he said no casinos will be in our state. He is more to blame here, they both need to go. To me that is corrupted, he knew he was going to run for re-election this year and knew many people did not want the casinos, so why not put in a fall guy to do the dirty work, we are being set up people.
