Warren Champions Indian Gaming Bill Tied to Special Interests

Legislation would expedite Native American casino project backed by Malaysian conglomerate with deep pockets

As a candidate for the Senate in 2011, Warren strongly opposed successful efforts to expand casino-style gambling in Massachusetts. In 2014, she backed an unsuccessful ballot initiative to repeal the expansion on economic grounds.

Earlier this year, however, Warren’s tone shifted. Before the National Congress of American Indians, the senator promised the tribal leaders in attendance she would fight against “our country’s mistreatment of your communities.” Shortly after making that promise, Warren sponsored the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Reservation Reaffirmation Act.
