Gaming critic also looking for work -- in gaming

An outspoken critic of the Mohegan Tribe's gaming enterprise -- along with the $19 billion tribal casino industry as a whole -- is raising eyebrows because he is seeking work in gaming and is looking to profit off his experience working for the Mohegan casino.

Bradley Beecher, a former state police lieutenant, accuses tribal casinos of being unregulated. It's a familiar charge aired by anti-Indian gaming opponents across the nation.

Where Beecher differs is that he created a company, Thetis Consulting [Web Site], to seek work in gaming and gaming regulation. He's also selling an online book titled "True Stories of Political Crime and Corruption in the American Gaming Industry."

Separately, Beecher is pursuing a lawsuit against the Mohegan Tribe. The case was dismissed due to the tribe's sovereign immunity but the Connecticut Supreme Court has agreed to hear the dispute.
