Lawmaker pressing gambling panel to delay McGee hiring

Letter calls for inquiry into abuse allegations

A prominent Republican lawmaker from Norfolk wants the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to delay the hiring of Carl Stanley McGee, to allow the panel to independently investigate sexual assault allegations brought against McGee by a 15-year-old boy in Florida in 2007.

In a letter slated for delivery to the commission on Monday morning, Representative Daniel Winslow asked the panel to stay the hiring of McGee - who is scheduled to begin working Monday as the commission’s interim executive director - for a week to allow for an independent inquiry into the accusations.
