State Representative Lou Lang says Governor Pat Quinn may have put his own foot in his mouth when it comes to gaming.  He says several lawmakers have changed their "no" vote to "yes" after Governor Quinn started bad talking the legislature.  He says Quinn called the legislature sloppy and down talked the ag and horse industries, which angered many downstate lawmakers who didn't originally support the bill.  Lang says he isn't giving up on gaming.  In fact, he plans on lobbying his colleagues to try to get a veto proof majority so he can call the measure for override in the next few weeks.  Despite their differences, Lang says Quinn is a man of integrity who is doing his best to protect the interests of the people in Illinois.
