    After ID bingo scandal, Lottery seeks to tighten reporting rules


    BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Charities that offer bingo and raffle games could face stricter requirements for tracking their proceeds under legislation proposed by the Idaho Lottery Commission in the wake of a bingo scandal that sent two men to federal prison.

    These changes are linked to a February 2007 ruling by the Idaho Supreme Court.

    That case effectively shuttered Big Bucks Bingo by upholding the revocation of the gaming licenses of two charities, Sons and Daughters of Idaho, Inc. and United States Amateur Boxing Federation, Snake River Association, that were supposedly benefiting from the games.

    William J. Tway, a disbarred lawyer, and Robert J. Ford, who ran Big Bucks Bingo, were eventually sentenced last July in a separate federal case to six months in prison, nine months of home detention and fines of $30,000 apiece for a scheme to defraud the government through the gaming parlor they had operated in the Boise area since 1996.

    That whole thing was about politics and money.

    When the Idaho State lottery profits began to drop, about two years ago, the Idaho Politicos, started trying to get rid of the state lotteries competition, the charity bingo halls in Idaho.

    Even the Idaho Supreme Court is working hard to protect the states profitable monopoly, the lottery.
