Check out my SCOOP on the donations commissioners on the Cook County Board received from the casino industry only three weeks before introducing a bill to ban the video gaming machines from Cook and DuPage counties.

Video Gaming Machines would compete for dollars with the casinos and some casino owners and lobbyists do not want it. The subject will be the topic of this morning's radio show on WJJG 1530 AM (8-9:30 am). You can also listen online at www.RadioChicagoland.com.
Here's the link to the story on donations Commissioner Bridget Gainer, the chief sponsor of the video gaming machine ban in Cook County, received.
I'll be posting updates on the story as I receive them. Not all of the commissioners commented (I've been trying to get comment since Thursday from some).
