Gambling panel director McGee quits amid uproar

Cites distractions of abuse allegation

The newly appointed interim executive director of the state Gaming Commission abruptly resigned Wednesday night, saying that the “growing distractions’’ created by allegations of sexual abuse against him had made it impossible for him to be effective in the job.

In a message to the board, Carl Stanley McGee said that “after much personal thought’’ he had decided to step down to let the commission “get on with the important public business of job creation and economic development it was created to perform.’’
