As it turns out, the Bennett’s-not-a-hypocrite-because-he-never-criticized-gambling dog may not hunt after all. He may not have said anything personally, but the organization of which he is a director, Empower America, has been on the case:

Empower America opposes the proliferation of casino gambling, and its co-chair, Kemp, recently lambasted lawmakers who “pollute our society with a slot machine on every corner.”

The group also recently published an “Index of Leading Cultural Indicators” that reported 5.5 million American adults as “problem” or “pathological” gamblers.
