Massachusetts senatorial candidate criticizes casinos

27 October 2009

BOSTON, Massachusetts -- A candidate for the late Ted Kennedy's U.S. Senate seat said he opposed casino gambling and challenged his opponents to take a stand on the issue, the Boston Herald reported on Tuesday.

Alan Khazei, a founder of City Year and a rookie politician, urged business leaders to oppose the issue, saying that casinos prey poor people and addicts.
