Issue 6 seeks OK to build first casino

MYOHIONOW/BLUE WATER FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST PENN NATIONAL GAMING (ARGOSY CASINO)

(Columbus,Ohio/10/23/08)- My Ohio Now PAC and Blue Water Joint Venture, LLC have filed a Complaint in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas alleging that the "No On 6 Committee" made false and defamatory statements in its advertising campaign to defeat Issue 6 at the polls on November 4.

The Complaint names as defendants both the No On 6 Committee and its funding source, Penn National Gaming, Inc., the parent company of the Argosy family of casinos, which are located throughout the Midwest. The complaint states that Penn National Gaming has a direct and significant financial interest in defeating Issue 6 at the polls.

Stating claims for defamation, deceptive trade practices, and false advertising, the Complaint identifies numerous false and misleading statements used by "No On 6" to deceive voters, including false claims that hundreds of millions of dollars in profits will leave Ohio each year, that the proposed casino may pay no taxes at all, that Issue 6 permits the casino to employ criminals, and that Lyle Berman's business history is littered with wrongdoing. An award, including for punitive damages, is being sought against both the "No On 6 Committee" and Penn National for their shared role in publishing the false and misleading statements in an effort to prevent competition for the Argosy casinos.

The lawsuit follows the positive decision by a panel of the Ohio Election Commission (“OEC”) who found in favor of the MYOHIONOW/ISSUE 6 complaint of false advertising by the Vote No On 6 PAC. The OEC panel found probable cause that the Vote No On 6 PAC violated election laws by making false statements in numerous advertisements. A full hearing is scheduled for on Monday.


The OEC complaint dealt directly with the false, misleading and deceptive ads that have been broadcast to the Ohio voters for the last several weeks as part of a reported $40 million dollar campaign financed by Penn National/Argosy Casino. The passage of the Issue 6 measure would legalize a $600 million resort/casino in Clinton County. The opening of this Ohio casino would take away hundreds of millions of dollars from the Argosy casino which is in Lawrenceburg, Indiana but relies of the Cincinnati/Dayton area for the majority of its business.

We believe that it is time for Penn National/Argosy Casinos to be held accountable for their actions. This may include providing this information to every gaming authority in every state where Penn National holds a gaming license. We are considering in presenting a case whether Penn National meets the ethical standards to hold such gaming licenses," said Rick Lertzman, co-founder of MyOhioNow.com.

Issue 6 seeks OK to build first casino

OHIO ELECTION COMMISSION FINDS PROBABLE CAUSE IN ANTI-CASINO ADS

(Columbus, 10/23/08)- The panel of the Ohio Election Commission (“OEC”) found in favor of the MYOHIONOW/ISSUE 6 complaint of false advertising by the Vote No On 6 PAC. The OEC panel found probable cause of false statements on advertisements made on behalf of the Penn National/Argosy Casino funded Vote No On 6 PAC, which no sets the matter for a full hearing.

"We are pleased with the panel's decision of probable cause and look forward to the full hearing. We filed this complaint as we were concerned with the false, misleading and deceptive statements made in the advertising financed by Penn National/Argosy Casino and their financed Vote No on 6 PAC, " said Rick Lertzman who filed this complaint. Mr. Lertzman and Dr. Brad Pressman are co-founders of MyOhioNow who created Issue 6.

The complaint dealt directly with the false, misleading and deceptive ads that have been broadcast to the Ohio voters for the last several weeks as part of a reported $40 million dollar campaign financed by Penn National/Argosy Casino. The passage of the Issue 6 measure would legalize a $600 million resort/casino in Clinton County. The opening of this Ohio casino would take away hundreds of millions of dollars from the Argosy casino which is in Lawrenceburg, Indiana but relies of the Cincinnati/Dayton area for the majority of its business.

" Penn National /Argosy Casino, through their Vote No on 6 PAC, has spread a reported $40 million on television, radio, Internet ads, brochures, and endorsements. They have run a negative campaign against the CEO of Lakes Entertainment, Lyle Berman, who is a honored businessperson who has held gaming licenses for nearly two decades," said Rick Lertzman.

Dr. Pressman continued, "We believe now that we have a probable cause finding by the Ohio Election Commission on this important tax issue, voters will begin to recognize the reported $40 million in deceptive statements by Penn National /Argosy Casino's Vote No on 6."

"There are 10,000 Ohio jobs at stake along with hundreds of millions in revenues to Ohio. Ohio voters must be made aware of the stakes involved in this measure. Its DEAL or NO DEAL. If this passes, Ohio will have nearly 10,000 new jobs and hundreds of millions of tax revenues. If Issue 6 fails, Ohio will continue to have no benefits from the Ohio residents who already gamble, " continued Dr. Pressman.

Analysis: Revenue figures for Ohio casino are vague

Poll shows support for Ohio casino proposal
Posted: Oct 6, 2008 09:29 AM
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A poll finds that by a 9-point margin, Ohio voters are willing to bet on a southwest Ohio casino that proponents say will create at least 5,000 jobs.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Monday that 50 percent of likely Ohio voters support a ballot measure to allow a $600 million casino resort near Wilmington. Forty-one percent are opposed, and 9 percent are undecided.

The newspaper's poll of nearly 2,300 Ohioans likely to vote was conducted Sept. 24-Oct. 3. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.

Developers say the casino project would mean not only jobs but also income for each of Ohio's 88 counties.

But a campaign funded by owners of an Indiana casino argues that the ballot proposal would create a casino monopoly in Ohio.
