Governor Carney Profits Off Legislation

Who would have thunk it?  Delaware Governor John Carney managed to turn a tidy little profit from recent legislation he signed.

Yesterday, Carney was the first to place a bet for a single game at Dover Downs Casino.  Delaware is the second state after Nevada to allow single-game sports wagering.  According to the News Journal, Carney bet $10.00 for the Philadelphia Phillies to win in a game against the Chicago Cubs.  Philly beat the Cubs 6-1 last evening.  Carney doubled his money and walked away with $20.00.

Carney already spent his winnings according to a tweet he sent:

I was so confident the Phils would win that I’ve already spent the winnings- on a haircut before my 25th Anniversary dinner with Tracey last night.

I was wondering why I didn’t see Carney at Legislative Hall yesterday!  Congrats on your silver wedding anniversary Governor!

I knew politics was just a money-making scheme!

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
