Do As I Say - Not As I Do

Former State Rep Mark Naughton (R-PA) made it onto the state gaming board partly because he was tough on gambling. He voted against allowing slots in the Keystone State back in 2004. And he opposed gambling publicly for years before that.

Publicly being the key word.

The Philly Inquirer got hold of his tax records. They show he won $15,500 from 2003-2005.

He disclosed the winnings on his IRS forms -- but never on his state ethics reports. Mr McNaughton takes up his new, $145,000 a year job in mid-January.

That's 580,000 pulls on a quarter slot machine. (AP via Tampa Bay Online)
