In a previous post we suggested it may not be a bad idea for Steve Beshear to visit Aurora, IL. Many think beating Fletcher to the punch with statistics refuting his figures on the ills of casinos would be a good thing.
Well, looks like Beshear won’t have to get his hands dirty with this one. Mark Hebert did the dirty work when he and WHAS-TV went to Aurora late last week. Hebert found a different view than Ernie did (not that it would be difficult in the least) when he interviewed the town’s mayor, Tom Weisner, and will share that with viewers this evening.
Looks like Ernie really did pick the wrong place to prove his point that casinos destroy communities.
We’ll have the video up after it airs.
