Graham and Chaffetz could be supporting online gambling ban for the wrong reasons

May 16, 2014

Lindsey Graham and Jason Chaffetz could be supporting online gambling ban for the wrong reasons

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, backed by billionaire Sheldon Adelson is co-sponsoring with Jason Chaffetz a bill that would reinstate federal law to prohibit all forms of Internet gambling.

In December 2011 Justice Department issued an opinion that the Interstate Wire Act of 1961, covers only sports betting. Following this decision, Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey have legalized forms of in-state Web gaming, and ten states are considering doing the same, including California, Pennsylvania and the State of New York. The proposed legislation does not contain a grandfather clause that would permit Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware to continue offering online gaming as they do now, and would bring to a halt the recent Nevada-Delaware agreement to pool online poker. Those states and any others would be required to get Congress to sign off. According to Benswann.com, both Senators are supporting Sheldon Adelson not because they are really against online gambling but because they want to protect the interests of a wealthy man who is backing the US Republican Party.
