The Ohio ballot Issue 6 to build a casino and resort in southwestern Clinton County fell to defeat Tuesday as nearly 2 out of 3 voters said no. The proposition would have shared gambling revenues between all 88 counties, but only 4 counties voted in favor.

Bob Tenenbaum, spokesman for No On 6 committee, said Tuesday night "The referendum was full of loopholes, and people understood that."

David Zanotti, president of the anti-gambling Ohio Roundtable, said "And it always loses by near the same numbers. Sixty percent of the people in Ohio don't want casino." This is the fourth time voters in Ohio have defeated a gambling initiative.

MyOhioNow could not be reached for comment late Tuesday.

The controversial issue was the ballot language that said the new casino would pay "up to" 30 percent of its gross proceeds. Those two words questioned how much the casino would actually pay. The No On 6 committee said the payment would be zero if an Indian casino opened and paid no taxes.
