Good morning from Pennsylvania, where every profit pleases, and only man is vile

HARRISBURG — During the final days of state budget negotiations, a flurry of press releases was sent to media, letters were sent to lawmakers and radio ads were sent over airwaves, all advocating low tax rates and license fees for casino table games. One statement threatened that four large casinos would sue the state if smaller ones were allowed to increase the number of slot machines at their locations. The communications all emanated from The Pennsylvania Casino Association, which has been run for the last two years by former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Stephen A. Zappala Sr. and his daughter Michele Zappala Peck, who is running for Allegheny Common Pleas Court.
