“I’m appalled,” Lottery Commission Chairman Charlie Sanders said, describing his reaction to the revelation Scientific Games, which wants to bid on a lottery contract, paid Kevin Geddings $24,500.

How appalled? Not appalled enough to say that anyone – like Scientific Games – who paid a lottery commissioner $10,000 the day after he was appointed – should be banned from bidding on a contract.

Instead, Mr. Sanders says Scientific Games is “still a potential bidder.”

Here is a simple fact: Scientific Games paid Geddings $10,000 and Geddings kept it a secret. If making payments to a lottery commissioner doesn’t disqualify you from bidding on a contract – what does?

This just gets ‘smellier and smellier.’
