CarlStanleyMcGeeAP.jpgCommonwealth Magazine, The Boston Globe, and RedMassGroup have stories up featuring a treasure trove of newly released emails about the failed appointment of Carl Stanley McGee to the gaming commission that focus on his past, particularly his arrest for allegedly assaulting 15 year old boy in Florida in 2007.

McGee was never charged with a crime and eventually resigned from his acting position on the commission when the incident came to light.

Given the history of child sexual abuse in this region it's hard to see how anybody could have thought that the public would let this slide. The spotlight on the newly formed Gaming Commission was so intense, too, that there was simply no way that any appointee's past would not be thoroughly vetted. The public doesn't forgive or forget allegations like this even if they're dropped or found untrue, it's like a scarlet letter.
