Gambling Senator Says “No” to Gambling Expansion

Senate President David Williams

A Kentucky Senator who reported $36,000 in gambling losses during a four year period from 1999 to 2002 opposes gambling expansion in his state but insists he is not morally opposed to the activity.

“I have never denied that I went to casinos,” Williams said in an interview with the Courier Journal. “… And I have never said I have a moral problem with anybody who presently does. I just think it's not good public policy to expand gambling in the state of Kentucky.”

Williams is not just any state Senator.  He happens to be the Senate President and the General Assembly's main opponent to the expansion of gambling.

His gambling activity surfaced after another state newspaper pulled up a divorce filing.

“The document says that there were on my income tax returns … losses to that extent claimed,” he said Saturday. “So I must have had winnings more than that ... because you can only deduct losses to the extent of winnings.”

Williams made it clear he is a casual gambler who has not ventured to a casino in more than two years. 

“I've never had any kind of gambling problem at all. I've never owed any casino any money,” he said.
