HARRISBURG — A prominent lobbyist who was criticized for investing in a slot-machine distributorship through a trust for his two minor children said Thursday that the trust is selling its stake in the firm. The lobbyist, Stephen R. Wojdak, said other partners will buy the trust's stake. Neither he nor the trust will receive any financial gain from the transaction, which is subject to approval by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, he said. Liberty Gaming Distributors LP, the Plymouth Meeting-based distributor, confirmed that the trust was being removed from ownership. In a terse statement, the company promised to file "all necessary documents" to the board for approval. Wojdak, one of Pennsylvania's best-known lobbyists, said he and the company's owners want to end the public controversy over the trust's involvement in Liberty Gaming. "I, as a parent, do not want to subject my children to that kind of controversy," he said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. Under state law, anyone seeking or holding a license to operate, manufacture or distribute slot machines in Pennsylvania is barred from giving money to candidates or political action committees. Wojdak had made more than $50,000 in political contributions since Liberty Gaming applied for a license in February. The gaming board approved Liberty Gaming's application last week, making it one of 16 licensed distributors. The board attached conditions to prevent Wojdak from using the trust money, but its chairman said the trust's involvement did not bar Wojdak from making political contributions. Still, Wojdak's indirect involvement drew criticism from newspaper editorialists who said the case underscored the need for lawmakers to repair the 2004 law that legalized slot-machine gambling. The board could consider the trust's withdrawal as early as its next meeting, on Aug. 23, said board spokesman Nicholas Hays. Board chairman Tad Decker applauded the latest development. "Although the slots law did not provide any grounds for the board to deny a license to the Petersburg Trust, Liberty Gaming is probably making the right decision by removing the trust," Decker said in a written statement. Wojdak, 67, a former state legislator from Philadelphia whose lobbying clients include two companies that have applied for licenses to run slots casinos, said he never anticipated the furor when he created the trust to invest in the company. "Had I anticipated it, I would never have gone near it," he said. The investment was "permissible and proper under the law," he said. "I saw it as an opportunity ... that could be beneficial to my children." Wojdak declined to say how much of Liberty Gaming the trust owns, but said it is a minority interest. Once its involvement with Liberty Gaming is severed, he and his wife will control the trust, he said. The change in ownership would mainly require Liberty Gaming to reimburse the trust for a small amount that it contributed toward filing fees and similar expenses, he said. The children, who are 11 and 13, have been away at summer camp, he said. "Frankly, they're not aware of this," he said of the controversy. The slots law authorized as many as 61,000 slot machines at 14 slots parlors around the state. The gaming board has been laying the legal and bureaucratic framework for the new industry, and the board's chairman has said the first slots casinos could open at horse tracks before the end of the year. The law also requires that slot-machine manufacturers sell equipment to Pennsylvania casinos through the distributors. A bill that would repeal that requirement, and make numerous other changes, is pending in the Legislature. Lawmakers are not slated to reconvene until September.
