From the NY Times:
The Paterson administration has released a confidential document that assessed the various bidders vying for the rights to operate a casino at the Aqueduct racetrack in Queens.
The document, which was prepared by the state’s Division of Lottery last August, was turned over to The New York Times, which sought to obtain it through a Freedom of Information Act request.
The document is likely to raise new questions about why Gov. David A. Paterson and the Legislature selected the Aqueduct Entertainment Group, which does not fare nearly as well in the Lottery Division’s assessment as some of the other bidders. A.E.G., in fact, appears to be the fourth rated among six bidding groups in the running at the time.
