Adelson’s Anti-Online Poker Arguments Blown Away on the Tim James Show

Poker player and broadcaster Tim James is using the first episode of his Tim James Show to expose Sheldon Adelson’s arguments against online poker as pure hypocrisy founded on lies.

The teaser video shows how easy it is to gamble and play poker underage in Adelson’s casinos, and even hire a rather expensive prostitute.

Adelson has vowed to “spend whatever it takes” to prevent Americans from playing online poker. He funded a new lobby group called the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling, and is packing politicians coffers with “contributions” a.k.a bribes to get their support.

In the last US Presidential elections Adelson spent over $100 million funding political campaigns to advance his view of morality. He’s the eighth richest man in the world, with a fortune of over $40 billion derived from the Las Vegas Sands Corporation which operates casinos throughout the world.

He is currently trying to get a bill through Congress which is implausibly called “The Restoration of America’s Wire Act (RAWA).” The bill would completely change the original intent of the 1964 Wire Act and make it illegal to play online poker anywhere in the US, even in New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada where the states themselves have exercised their sovereign power to regulate the game.

Enjoy the video and if you want to play online poker in the US, go ahead. Apart from in a few states it’s completely legal to do so—not a single US player has ever been charged or fined for playing online poker.
