Grisanti, wife & others banned from Seneca Niagara Casino

The Seneca Gaming Corporation has banned State Senator Mark Grisanti, his wife Maria, and three other people from all of the Nation's casinos. 

The Buffalo News is reporting that move is part of an established policy for those involved in disturbances in Seneca casinos. 

According to the News,  Senator Grisanti is facing a three year ban;  Mrs. Grisanti can not visit a casino for one year; while Eric White, his wife Kristina and a third person, Christina Schindler have also been barred, though it is not known for how long. 

The disciplinary action by the Seneca Nation follows a scuffle involving the five people at the Seneca Niagara Casino on February 10th.
