Description

The Daily Herald investigation on state political contributions from gambling interests was the first in-depth look into how much the four-year - old Illinois' riverboat casino industry was funneling into state government. The report also was the first major piece to examine the political spending habits of Richard Duchossois, perhaps the single-most influential Republican contributor in state government. (Oct 17 - 19, 1995)
