Genting's playing hardball up in Tallahassee, throwing their financial clout around, making heavy political contributions, and placing audacious bets on the future of casino gambling in Florida. They've got their game on, spending $1.3 million so far on the 2012 election, funding candidates, and getting a pro-gamming constitutional amendment on the ballet, thereby circumventing a contrary legislature. The lobbying has, in sheer magnitude, changed the political landscape in the state capital. [Miami Herald]
