Harrah’s to sue gov?

Rhode Island governor Donald Carcieri might have to put his money where his mouth is. From News Channel 10:

Harrah’s Entertainment says it’s contemplating legal action against the governor over comments he made at an anti-gambling conference.

Harrah’s spokeswoman Jan Jones says the governor’s claim that Harrah’s tried to win a law firm’s support for a West Warwick casino proposal by promising business from an estimated 200 home foreclosures a year is “patently untrue.”

Carcieri, an ardent casino opponent, has refused to name the law firm and stands behind his statement.

Jones says if he doesn’t retract what he said, Carcieri should expect Harrah’s to take legal action. She says his remarks were slanderous.

Harrah’s Seeks Retraction Of Carcieri Comment

I can’t wait to hear Carcieri’s “proof.” There are few other industries that you badmouth just because you feel like it and not be held accountable, but I guess casinos are one of them.
