Gambling bill signed – Commission already sued – GOPers hit Newt’s “humane” immigration stance

SEALED, DELIVERED: To quote a certain senior legislative leader from Plymouth, "I don’t want to talk to you guys about gaming ever again." Yesterday the bill was signed, silver trumpets rang out and Speaker DeLeo ascended to heaven. (Globe, Herald, T&G)

SUE THEM: You know you’re dealing with a state entity with potential when the new gambling commission gets sued not six hours after being legally created. (PI, AP)

MAGNETS, HOW DO THEY WORK?: The GOP presidential candidates debated in Washington last night. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich stood by his position on immigration, calling for reform that would prevent families with some illegal members from being split up. Some of the other candidates, including Mitt Romney, who I’m told used to be the Massachusetts governor (#FunFact), weren’t so keen on Newt’s "humane" approach, calling it a magnet for more illegals.
