Description

A Las Vegas-based gaming company purchased an option to buy a plot of river-front land partially owned by a Pennsylvania state senator and his family. Controversy ensued when it was found that the state had sold water rights valued at $1.5 million for $100,000. Federal prosecutors subpoenaed documents on the sale, and real estate option from the state government and the gaming commission. The company reconfigured the option to exclude the senator and his family and then dropped the deal altogether.
