Mega casinos in Florida would take the state “in a fundamentally wrong direction,” Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said in a statement today. “We need less gambling in Florida, not more,” she said. Bondi said that part of the reason the state gave exclusive gaming rights to the Seminoles was that it would be so successful as to remove the need for expanded gaming.  “Yet here we are, only a short time later, being asked to go along with yet another massive expansion,” she said. Bondi focused on the potential for a casino in her hometown of Tampa, although the legislation currently being discussed does only includes the tri-county area. [SFBJ]
