David Nunes: One Gambling Addict Massachusetts Can’t Afford


David Nunes with his Crossroads Massachusetts, LLC is the latest player attempting to disrupt the current legislative process to create enabling rules for casino gambling in Massachusetts.  Nunes, an Aspen Colorado resident and developer, is threatening try and game the system with non-competitive slots and preferences for Indian gaming.  He has stretched his Massachusetts connections via Crossroads, LLC lobbying and campaign cash for more than a decade in a desperate attempt to feed a habit of corruption and special preference in his venture to add millions to a personal fortune that is anything but common in the Commonwealth.

Nunes – a purported three-time loser in his attempts to pass casino legislation including special preferences to benefit his narrow interests on the East Coast striking out, most notably, in Rhode Island with mega-partner Donald Trump – is so hooked in trying to cut a deal for his own benefit, he’s spent 13 years trying to game the state.  His lobbying efforts, nearly $100,000 spent in the past three years alone, apparently haven’t paid off sufficiently in spite of tens of thousands in political campaign contributions.  As a result, Nunes is threatening to take his marbles, lose as they may be, and play a different game.  This time dragging the state into a ballot measure process in which only he would be allowed, along with two Indian gaming operations, to open a casino in Massachusetts.

Boldly proclaiming to the Herald, "This is my life insurance policy," Nunes claims he’ll funnel new cash into an initiative process and not let anybody else even compete adding, “If I’m going to spend the money for the initiative, I’m not going to do it so somebody else can win.”   Nunes claims he’ll throw hundreds of thousands of dollars more to gather the thousands of signatures necessary to place his special preference question on the November 2012 ballot.  OK, so will have another year of disruption with some carpet bagging money bags allowed to put a measure on the state ballot that serves no one’s interests other than his own?  Who wouldn’t love to have that kind of dough and gall?

So just who is David Nunes; Why has he spent a fortune, brags he is prepared to spend even more, to support an industry that nearly one-third of Massachusetts residents oppose? Why the special deal for Indian gaming in his brazen and otherwise self-serving ballot tactic?  Send me your dirt, while I start digging.  Somebody this hair brained must have piles under the carpet...

  2. What a blow-hard and cry-baby. Nunes tried once already to use the Aquinnah Wampanoag's on a previous casino bid; he's simply a real estate developer on the warpath for any cash cow he can find in this down economy.

  3. Check out this from Blue Mass Group's Sarah Kennedy on David Nunes, claiming his proposal is "a truly hilarious abuse of the initiative process" for a guy operating out of PO Box shared by a bait shop.

  4. David Nunes is a big schemer. He ran some kind of business when he lived in Washington DC in the first half of the 1990s. His partner was Terry McAuliffe, former DNC Chairmen. They got sued and the business went south.

  5. After David had to skip town in DC, he moved up to Mass in the late nineties working for a local developer called O'Neil Properties. I met David several times back then. He was always talking about the next best get-rich-quick scheme. Back then he was interested in those horrid Schedule 40B apartment complex developments. Was not enough money in it so he set his sites on Gaming!

  6. Want to know what kind of classy guy David Nunes is ? In the second half of the 90s he pursued this woman from the main line in Philly. She came from some money and had a trustfund.....and she was married to a coast guard officer. Anyway, he managed to break up their marriage and married her shortly after, now having access to the trustfund money for all his crazy schemes!

  7. 2/3s of MA residents no nothing of the ramifications of casino gambling. Construction
    jobs at first, then low paying wages for the rest.
    Crooked, Phony Native leaders stealing money,
    underhanded dealing, and destroyed lives. Perception is everything, but Casino gambling
    will not solve our problems,it will only make
    a few people rich. Desperate times make for silly decisions.

  9. David has done several deals within Massachusetts while others couldn't get it done. If he pulls this together it will make money for the State and put poeple back to work. I've read the comments above and I wonder how many of you have invested years into a project and risked everything? Stop bashing the guy for thing big.

  18. For instance, coffee shops have menus of brown color or shades of the same hue in order to bring the atmosphere of the cafe and set it in the menu. Whereas, a Japanese or Chinese restaurant would make a more colorful menu that uses images that reflect their culture and their food – since their dishes include various colors. This blog will be showing you some of the most amazing menu designs for your use.I seriously appreciate people like you! Take care!!;)!!visit my site and Play agen88.net
