School for Scandal

As published in NY Daily News
September 12, 2012

Tuckahoe, N.Y.: Racinos are spending millions of dollars on TV
commercials touting themselves as saviors of schools. The
scandal-plagued New York Racing Association was taken over by Gov.
Cuomo because of a dramatic spike in the number of breakdowns and
fatalities of horses. This was coupled with the fact that NYRA, with
the knowledge of its senior executives, had improperly shortchanged
bettors of millions of dollars. Our children deserve better than to be
used as window dressing to cover up cruelty and corruption.
