Online Poker Industry Organizes to Oppose Adelson

Former Congress members Mike Oxley (R-OH) and Mary Bono (R-CA), have joined the industry sponsored organization to lend their political experience to lobbying efforts. “Congress can neither legislate the Internet away, nor consumer demand for online products,” said Mike Oxley.

The C4COP has $250,000 to spend over the next few weeks in getting the message out to politicians and the public.

John Pappas of the Poker Players Alliance supports the new organization: “The concern is that a lot of money can buy you traction, and Adelson has a lot of money.” Pappas said.

They are trying to deliver a message that misrepresents the issue, and for those of us who have been following this issue for a long time, we see through the blatant hypocrisy and misrepresentation. The average American may not be familiar with this issue at all and can be taken by some of the PR push that they are making.

The Las Vegas Sands owner Sheldon Adelson’s latest stunt in his anti-online poker campaign backfired. He asked state attorney generals to sign a letter opposing online gaming. Only 14 did so.
