BOSTON (CBS) – State leaders want to bring casino gambling here to Massachusetts.

But, some critics are concerned that could be a losing bet for the Bay State.

WBZ’s Jon Keller is at large with Scott Harshbarger, the former attorney general of Massachusetts.

Part 1:

Part 2:

Harshbarger, who unsuccessfully ran for governor in 1998, argues that Massachusetts is “unprepared” to administer a new casino industry.

He adds that the Bay State would need a strong regulatory and enforcement scheme in place to ensure that money and power don’t just go to the benefit of would-be casino owners.

“We don’t have the enforcement tools to deal with economic crime,” said Harshbarger.

You can listen to Keller At Large on WBZ News Radio every weekday at 7:55 a.m. and 12:25 p.m. You can also watch Jon on WBZ-TV News.
