Mike Hamilton is lying to His Voters!
Hamilton is telling his voters that he is not for casinos but Hamilton turns around and tell the Newspapers that he is FOR Casinos and gambling and is trying hard to pass a gambling bill [see below for quotes from Hamilton in newspapers]
A Vote for Mike “Tuffy” Hamilton is a vote for Casinos and Expanded Gambling in Texas.
A Vote for Hamilton is a vote for RINO Speaker Joe Straus to be able to pass a gambling bill that will bring millions to Joe Straus’ Gambling business and cost the residents of Texas dearly.
This is one of the most important races in Texas because if Hamilton wins he will use his Chairman position to try to bring casinos and gambling into Texas.
A Las Vegas Casino has already bought Racetracks in Texas in anticipation that Hamilton will be re-elected and will pass a bill allowing Casinos and Expanded Gambling in Texas
We all need to vote AGAINST Mike Hamilton
Hamilton is a proven liar and cannot be trusted.
Read the rest of my story for proof that Hamilton is lying to his voters on Casinos and Gambling
Mike Tuffy Hamilton is a two faced hypocrite. Mike Hamilton sold out to the gambling industry when they flashed him some cash. Let me ask you something Tuffy. If your family was in debt would you tell your wife that the way to solve the problem was to go to the Casino? Then why are you saying Texas needs gambling to help the state budget? You are not only wrong but you are also lying to your voters to get them to vote for you while at the same time your hand is in the money pot of the gambling industry.
Hamilton has been telling his conservative and Christian east Texas voters that he is not for casinos or expanded gambling in Texas. He knows that his voters do not want casinos or expanded gambling in Texas so Hamilton tells them what they want to hear. Hamilton tells them he is not for gambling.
Want proof that Hamilton is telling his voters that he is against gambling?
Check out this article from a guy in Lumberton, TX in Hardin County. http://hardincountyconservatives.blogspot.com/2011/05/mike-hamilton-kills-gambling-bills.html This article says that Hamilton told his constituents that he is not for Casinos or gambling. Mike Hamilton even told them that he killed the gambling bill just for them, his constituents.
Mike Hamilton is 100% in favor of Casinos Gambling
He has been lying to his constituents in order to get votes. He is slick and only cares about the almighty dollar, not his voters.
Hamilton is the author of HJR 112 which would legalize casinos and expand gambling in Texas. Hamilton has also voted for casinos and expanded gambling in past legislative sessions.
Hamilton is an outspoken advocate for gambling and will keep trying to get it until it passes. Hamilton will tell his voters one thing but then turn around and do something else of a check from the gaming industry. Hamilton told his voters that he killed the bill for them but the truth is that Hamilton could not get the votes to pass the bill because most voters in Texas and even the Republican Party of Texas Platform are against Casinos and expanded gambling in Texas. The Governor also said he would veto it.
That is why Hamilton’s gambling bill died. It died because it was not going to pass. It did not die because Hamilton cares about his voters.
Hamilton cannot be trusted!

read these quotes straight from the mouth of Mike Tuffy Hamilton himself
Rep. Mike “Tuffy” Hamilton, R-Mauriceville, said he still doesn’t have the 100 votes required in the House to advance the constitutional amendment his committee approved.
Hamilton told the Star-Telegram that he wants to be assured that the measure will muster 100 house votes before he tries to push it through his committee, but he said he is optimistic of getting the support. “I think we’re really close,” he said. http://www.star-telegram.com/2011/04/27/3032530/bill-in-texas-legislature-could.html
The Republican from Mauriceville, who chairs the committee, drafted a House joint resolution calling for a constitutional amendment. Hamilton said the bill would allow for construction of seven destination casinos, three Indian tribal reservation casinos and 13 dog and horse tracks. http://www.surebetracingnews.com/NEWS/TEXAS_Gaming_Akin_devil-04232011.htm
Hamilton said casinos could be part of the fix for Texas’ fiscal crisis. He chairs the House Committee on Licensing and Administration, which heard testimony on 17 gaming bills Tuesday. They included everything from casinos and slots to race tracks and bingo. http://www.kxan.com/dpp/news/politics/gaming-bill-may-include-travis-co-venue
Casinos and Expanded Gambling are BAD for Texas
promises promises promises….. but no return on the investment…. just more crime and more families and lives ruined and money sucked out of homes. Did the Lottery for Education? NO! It is a tax on the poor. Governor Perry says gambling is not the way to build a solid economy in Texas. If gambling was the way to solve state financial problems then Nevada would be doing great, but Nevada has serious financial problems.
Rob Kohler for the Texas Baptist Christian Life Commission said bringing casino gambling to Texas would enable people to gamble who do not have the means to go elsewhere. He also said pari-mutuel wagering came with promises of revenue that did not pan out, and instituting the lottery did not “solve all our problems.”
Suzii Paynter of the Texas Baptist Christian Life Commission said the costs of more gambling, such as from litigation and social problems, would outstrip gains. Paynter asked the lawmakers to consider whether they would solve their personal financial problems with gambling; if not, they should not do so for their constituents.
“We have an opportunity to make a decision as if this state were a family,” she said.
