Investigators researching the controversial selection of a politically-connected casino operator to run slot machines at the Aqueduct Racetrack are expected to subpoena Jay Z, Russell Simmons, and influential reverend and former Congressman Floyd Flake. According to the Post, Jay-Z and Flake are partners in Aqueduct Entertainment Group—the casino company that Gov. Paterson chose for the contract even though it initially said it would generate the least revenue, before drastically changing its estimates. Simmons reportedly was an advisor to Penn National Gaming, a losing bidder. Dozens of others are expected be questioned about the deal, including bidders who were passed over in favor or AEG.
