Until June, Frank Fahrenkopf had been the face of the national gaming lobby, the American Gaming Association. That's the group that ensures Congress and the President don't impede or tax casinos. But now Fahrenkopf has retired and the big casinos that dominate the group's board have not selected a retired politician or similar insider to head their Washington operations. They poached Geoff Freeman from the U.S. Travel Association. Freeman talks about his predecessor's legacy, what he will do and the big issues facing the casino industry.
