(Harrisburg) _ Pennsylvania gaming officials have rejected a bid by a northeastern Pennsylvania businessman to do business with the casino he founded but was forced to relinquish amid allegations of lying about ties to organized crime figures.
The state Gaming Control Board voted unanimously without debate Wednesday to preserve the current restrictions on Louis DeNaples' dealings with Mount Airy Casino Resort in Mount Pocono.
A perjury charge was dropped after DeNaples agreed to transfer ownership of the casino to a family trust. But the gaming board said DeNaples was not allowed to benefit financially from the casino without approval.
Mount Airy wanted the gaming board to lift that restriction so DeNaples' businesses could supply goods, such as auto parts, and services, such as garbage hauling, to the casino at cost.
