Gambling: It’s for the Children

From Capitol Ideas:

Speaking from Summerdale, Cumberland County, yesterday, Rendell urged the young’uns to mount a Children’s Crusade by signing an online petition supporting the legalization of tens of thousands of video poker terminals to raise roughly $500 million for higher education grants.

Read the whole thing.  I’m wholly in agreement with Rendell on the liberalization of the state’s gambling laws, but I think it’s odd to employ children in the promotion of it.  Lame duck Ed is a lot more interesting than needs to win an election Ed.  I will say that.  Perhaps next Rendell can tell kids to convince their parents to drink more in order to bring in even more money the state can use for education.
