Supreme Flip-Floppers

Atsalis, Binienda, Fagan, Fennell, Gobi, Kafka, Spiliotis^, Steven Walsh, Hargraves, Poirier, Ross

The Gambling Industry's Tentacles in the House
Legislators who represent the special interests for slots in the House and always vote for them.

Allen*, Calter*, Canessa, Creedon****, DeLeo^^, DiNatale*, Flynn^^, Fresolo, Garry, Koczera, McCarthy*, Naughton*****, Nyman, O'Day*, Puppolo*, Quinn, Rice*, Rush, Sandlin*, Smith*, Thomas Stanley, Timilty, Toomey, Wallace, Martin Walsh, Jones, Peterson, Barrows*, Frost, Gifford, Hill, Humason, Perry, Webster

*  These reps only voted on the 2010 and 2008 bills and weren't in office before.
**  Representative Katherine Clark, was for casinos, before she was against it, before she was for it. She supported them in her initial campaign to win union endorsements, voted against them when DiMasi was in office, now voted for them.
***  Harkins technically didn't vote on the 2010 vote, but had come out on record for it.
****  Creedon missed the 2010 vote, but voted for them in the past. It's a stretch to think he would have switched his vote now.
*****  Naughton missed the 2006 vote, but voted yes in 2008 and 2010.
^  Spiliotis didn't vote in 2010, but she's in favor of slots in the race tracks and would have almost certainly voted for the bill. She also voted against all the amendments which attempted to make DeLeo's bill sane (ie posting the odds).
^^  Flynn and DeLeo only vote for slots, so they voted against Patrick's 2008 bill.
