The Niagara Falls Police Department says it will look into an incident in which a NYS Senator and his wife were beat up during a social event at the Seneca Indian operated casino in that city.
Meanwhile, Maria Grisanti...wife of Sen. Mark Grisanti....has told the media she felt her life was in danger during the assault in which she suffered a concussion.
The dust up was exacerbated by disputes over gambling and cigarette sales as the State is angling to end Native American deals over those industries.
Let a State Senator and his wife get beat up anywhere else in the Falls and something will be done. On sovereign territory, however, the best we can do is "look into it".
Senator Grisanti was one of four Republicans to vote for the same sex marriage bill, although there is no suggestion that controversy factored into his General Custer moment at the casino.
