  • Maine tribes bitter over past casino results

    By Clarke Canfield
    Portland, Maine (AP)

    Maine’s tribes have tried three times to have laws passed so they could build a casino in the state. Three times they’ve failed.

    There’s a lingering bitterness among many tribal members as Mainers prepare to vote Nov. 4 on whether to allow a casino under the operation of a Las Vegas company.

    This is the second time Mainers will have voted on a casino that isn’t being proposed by either the Penobscot Indian Nation or the Passamaquoddy Tribe. The first time, back in 2003, voters approved a ballot question that allowed for the Hollywood Slots casino and its 1,000 slot machines in Bangor while rejecting a separate proposal for a tribal casino.
