The giant new Indian casino for the Bay Area that was approved by the Governor who claimed to be anti-casino? Seems like the fix was in:
Maloof Sports and Entertainment — the management team hired to run the new, Costco-size San Pablo Casino for the Lytton Band of Pomo Indians — hosted a party back in February that raised more than $1 million for Schwarzenegger's political coffers.

The governor's office claims Schwarzenegger didn't know the Maloof family was going to manage the casino until after the agreement had been reached.

We're supposed to believe that he approved a giant new casino without knowing who would run it and that by happy coincidence the managing company just happened to be a major campaign contributer.
