A relatively new organization with the goal of reversing the unlawful online gambling ban, has received the support and membership of a former NY Senator, who is know to be a skilled poker player.
The group is being called the Poker Players Alliance and they are hoping that with the help of the former Senator they can convince his DC associates, that this law is bad and needs to be reversed or at least make an exception for poker in the laws provisions, according to a report in the NY Times.
The issue they are dealing with is the law that President George Bush Signed in October of 2006 making it illegal for banks to transfer money to any accounts used for placing bets or receiving winning from online casinos, sportsbooks and Poker rooms.
According to the former NY Senator the law is unfair, it denies someone who maybe can not afford a trip to a casino the ability to place a bet from his home, and just because someone can not afford a trip to Vegas or AC or to their nearest casinos, does not mean that they should not be gambling. Maybe they keep to a strict budget and like to allow themselves a little bit every month to spend at an online casino to relax and try to enjoy their free time.
The group just made a deal with a lobbying group and said the organization already has over 160,000 members.
