Somebody is payin’…

and it better not be me.

Casey Ross reports that Deville has put out a comic book!

Gov. Deval Patrick is intensifying his push to win approval for casinos by sending lawmakers an 11-page color magazine pitching the economic benefits of his plan to license three gambling resorts across Massachusetts.

The magazine, subtitled “creating jobs, growing the economy,” was hand-delivered to legislators this afternoon as Patrick and gaming opponents waged a vote-by-vote battle over the casino plan. The mailer contains sections on job creation, state revenue estimates and a page titled, “The Importance of Acting Now.”

Who paid? The taxpayers? The unions? Suffolk Downs?

The people at the Governor’s office (617) 725-4005 and the Patrick committee (617) 367-2010 couldn’t answer the questions.
