Crosby, who until last week was the subject of a State Ethics Commission conflict-of-interest inquiry, made several indirect references to accusations against him in “the many twists and turns” in the commission’s years-old process of evaluating competing proposals for the limited number of casino licenses.

“Some of the challenges to the commission have been made in good faith, some sour grapes,” he said.

In a lawsuit filed on behalf of the city, Boston Mayor Martin Walsh has called for Crosby’s removal from the commission and a restart of the licensing process for a Greater Boston casino. The lawsuit portrays the Gaming Commission as having engaged in a pattern of making exceptions to the state casino law to benefit the Everett casino proposed by Wynn Resorts.
