Lindsey Graham wants to ban internet gambling?

According to a report from the leading online publisher of legal, regulatory, political and business information for the global gambling industry, Gambling Compliance, Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is about to introduce a bill that would  make online poker illegal.

CardsChat reports that Graham’s legislation will be introduced soon and plans to once more reinterpret and expand the Wire Act of 1961 – which in 2011 was declared to only apply to Internet sports betting by the U.S.Department of Justice. The planned bill would place a ban over Internet gaming altogether, alongside prohibitions that are already in place.

When the bill is introduced, its specific contents and direction will become better known.

However, Brian Pempus at CardPlayer.com writes that the chance are remote that Graham’s bill would pass. “Odds of any federal bill banning online gaming are remote, though. The reason? Because some states are already realizing legitimate revenues from the activity. Trying to put a stop to those industries would be almost impossible politically.”
