Ted Strickland’s Ohio Lottery Director Under Fire

July 25, 2009 at 6:27 pm Matt Leave a comment Go to comments

Laura Bishoff has a must-read article today for anyone interested in the unqualified hack, Mike Dolan, who is in charge of implimenting Ted Strickland’s VLTs in racetracks (That is, until the principled conservatives over at LetOhioVote.org put the issue before voters.)

In addition to giving a police officer lottery tickets in exchange for not reciving a speeding ticket, Ohio’s 1200 Keno machines have brought in less than 1/2 what was projected.

Make sure to read the entire thing. Apparently, Dolan’s only defender is Matt Cox, a quintessential bottom-feeder and Jim Petro’s former gubernatorial campaign manager in 2006 who quit at the last minute when Jim’s polls tanked.

    Excellent Post and demonstration about the corrupt Ohio Lottery Commission and staff. Its sole purpose is patronage up in Cuyahoga County. It is also hard to argue your assesment about Matt Cox too. Sadly, word around town is that Cox is close to Josh Mandel and a top advisor for his Trasurers Race. Matt's big payday will come if Josh wins and he can lobby the office and bring in Investment companies and banks to get state work from Josh $$$$$$$$

    Thank you for your comment. Josh is a solid guy. Perhaps I shouldn't have mentioned Matt, as my problem with him is too personal and doesn't really add to the story. But I'll watch this situation closely.
