Legal hurdles for the casino

Here is an article detailing all the legal hurdles a casino would face. I think that Dan McElroy, Pawlenty's Chief of Staff, is full of it: no lawsuit against the casino would be disposed of so quickly. We are looking at years here.

Why? Well, here's the simplest answer: look at Minnesota's constitution, Article 13, Section 5:

LOTTERIES. The legislature shall not authorize any lottery or the sale of lottery tickets, other than authorizing a lottery and sale of lottery tickets for a lottery operated by the state.

This fight will probably center on whether operating a casino is the same as selling lottery tickets, since the sale of lottery tickets is the only thing allowed by this section. I'm guessing it is not. But I'm not a lawyer, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

In any case, this is not going to happen anytime soon.

except that PAP Pawlenty is acting like it's a done deal. Typical Republican: repeat the lie to make it true.

This is a great post; it was very informative. I look forward in reading more of your work. Also, I made sure to bookmark your website so I can come back later. I enjoyed every moment of reading it. I admit, I have not been on this webpage in a long time... however it was another joy to see It is such an important topic and ignored by so many, even professionals. I thank you to help making people more aware of possible issues. Great stuff as usual...

I must show my thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from such a crisis. As a result of looking throughout the world-wide-web and seeing thoughts which were not productive, I assumed my entire life was well over. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the difficulties you’ve resolved as a result of your entire site is a serious case, as well as the kind which could have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not discovered the website. Your personal natural talent and kindness in dealing with almost everything was helpful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a point like this. I am able to at this point relish my future. Thanks so much for your high quality and effective help. I will not hesitate to propose your web site to any individual who needs to have counseling on this problem.
