Re: “The state GOP supports sweepstakes industry and empowers sleaze

Your facts are incorrect and misleading. The bills that have been introduced are both bi-partisan and will save thousands of jobs in this state, not to mention the millions of dollars in revenue that will be created.

Regarding Chase Burns, or anyone else at that. He did nothing illegal by making political contributions. Many business owners and corporations support the candidates they believe will be in the best interest for the future of their business. If you don't like that, you should push for the contribution laws to be changed. Chase also won his case.

These businesses have been in the state for 8 years and have done no harm. In fact, they have created a significant amount of revenue on the local, state and federal level. They have also created thousands of good jobs and generated a lot of business in real estate.

You obviously didn't need anyone to tell you that you were purchasing internet time because you mentioned it and that's what the business sells. The promotion works the same as any other retail promotion. You purchase your internet time, you receive free entries into the promotion, if you choose to reveal those entries you can select to use a revealer or you can reveal them all at once. If you win a prize you can then go to the cashier and redeem it.

Regardless, it's a free, no purchase necessary, retail promotion designed as a marketing tool to drive customers to that business.

You used the term "sleaze." The owners of these businesses are, for the most part, good people from local communities throughout the state. They are small business owners providing jobs and stimulus. Some operators own several other businesses in their communities. You seem to be a closed minded individual and you're trying to demonize and dramatize an industry to create an stir up your audience and create an "interesting story" about something you truly know and care nothing about.

You sir, are the sleaze.
