Dems pay hardball while Lance plays cricket

Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, a Democrat, is asking for a probe of GOP Assemblywoman Jennifer Beck’s role in helping a client obtain a state lottery contract when her client bid $32 million higher than the low bidder. Beck worked for MWW, a top lobbying firm, before running for the Legislature last year. For those who haven’t noticed the difference: Democrats aren’t hesitating to go after Beck — considered a strong candidate for State Senate against Ellen Karcher next year — but Senate Minority Leader Leonard Lance has not played the ethics card on Democratic Senators facing federal probes and a sexual harassment lawsuit.
