Column: Casino license delay another turkey for Waukegan
The Forest County Potawatomi Community is suing Waukegan over the delay of a casino. The tribe claims the process was rigged to favor the group led by former state Sen. Michael Bond. Wurkegans rejected the first casino bid in 2004 because of the developer's association with a politician. The current suit points the finger at former Mayor Sam Cunningham and his City Council allies. He lost his reelection bid earlier this year. It's alleged that the council members influenced the selection of North Point Casino. They were chosen over Full House Resorts and Rivers Casino Wawkega.
