BOSTON (AP) - The top investigator for the Massachusetts Gaming Commission says allegations that retired members of the State Police working for Wynn Resorts had access to a “wire-tap room” in the state attorney general’s office are false.

The Republican reports (https://bit.ly/1OeJWlp) that Karen Wells, the agency’s director of investigations and enforcement, said Thursday an investigation found “no factual basis” for the accusations.

Stephen Crosby, chairman of the Gaming Commission, called the allegations a “publicity stunt.”

The commission is in a dispute with Boston, which is seeking host community status. The city says regulators wrongly handed over the eastern Massachusetts casino license to Wynn for a $1.7 billion gambling resort in Everett.

Wells’ bureau said officials found “absolutely no reliable evidence” that the attorney general’s office disclosed confidential materials to agents of Wynn Resorts.
