You Say D'Amato, I Say D'Amato
Interesting article about Alfonse D'Amato, the former Republican senator from New York, and his recent hiring as a lobbyist for the Poker Players Alliance. Apparently the PPA is hopeful D'Amato can raise enough support in Washington to overturn the recent ban on online gambling. That bill was only passed because in the dead of night senator Frist tacked it on to the Port Securities Act, and just before the recess for mid-term elections. Of course no senator , whether running for reelection or not, would make standing up to Big Brother a higher priority than the safety of our nation's harbors. It'll be interesting to see if anything comes of this, but I'm going to bet...nothing. Fold.
