From her wikipedia page. Lol!

RoAnn Maggiolino Destito (born January 15, 1956) was appointed Commissioner of the New York State Office of General Services overseeing all state contracts, by Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2011. Prior to becoming Commissioner she was a member of the New York State Assembly for the 116th district (which includes Rome and Utica) from 1993 to 2011 when she resigned. During her tenure at the Assembly there was a long economic decline of New York State. She is a Democrat and claims a tight relationship with the NY Cuomo family.

Lol!!!!

Her tenure also included a seat on the New York State Liquor Authority Board. While on the SLA she agreed to granting the Oneida Indian Nation's Turning Stone Resort & Casino the legal ability to have alcohol served at the casino. This was done by granting an exclusive license to CD Food & Beverage to serve alcohol at the casino.[1] CD Food & Beverage (a "subsidiary" of The Beeches restaurant which is owned by the Destito family) was created and named for Chris Destito, husband of RoAnn Destito, shortly before he died. The Beeches is now owned by brothers of Chris Destito and a cousin (president Frank Destito, vice president Dominick Destito, and secretary/treasurer Orlando Destito.) The profit this arrangement yields CD Food & Beverage is estimated to be solidly in the seven figure range[2] although actual numbers are kept private and have not been released or publicly verified. Oneida County Legislator Michael Hennessy spoke out against issuing the permit and requested an investigation,[3] a number of business and community leaders supported that request, but the sweetheart deal remains in place. To comply with this deal approximately 1,200 employees were switched from working for Turning Stone to now being employed by CD Food & Beverage.[4]

I think this deal is over. The Oneidas have agreed to pay 50 million which allows them to have alcohol now.

Can't find that but you might be right. I'll update this thread if I find it. Still doesn't make the past deal right though.

No it doesn't. This is how American politics work. They're all bought! You think a person is going to donate $500,000 for nothing!?! We're screwed! Term limits is what we need!
