    Interest Groups Go All In To Fight For Their Rights
    Story Summary:

    THIS IS A MULTIVU SPECIAL REPORT. WITH THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES CONSIDERING LEGISLATION TO BAN ONLINE POKER, A GROUP CALLED THE POKER PLAYERS ALLIANCE IS VOICING ITS OPPOSITION ON CAPITOL HILL ON BEHALF OF THE MORE THAN 23 MILLION AMERICANS WHO PLAY POKER ONLINE.

    MICHAEL BOLCEREK, PRESIDENT OF THE POKER PLAYERS ALLIANCE:

    “We represent the guy in the wheelchair that logs in from Omaha or the Master Sergeant playing from the Green Zone in Baghdad. A recent poll by ICR Research showed that 74 percent of Americans oppose federal efforts to ban online poker.”

    THE BILL BEING CONSIDERED BY CONGRESS WOULD BLOCK AMERICANS FROM ACCESSING POKER WEB SITES AND REQUIRE THAT BANKS MONITOR CUSTOMER’S FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS TO ENSURE THEY ARE NOT GAMBLING ONLINE. THE POKER PLAYERS ALLIANCE FEELS THIS GOES TOO FAR.

    “This is censorship of the Internet, plain and simple. And, it puts the federal government too far into the pocketbook of ordinary Americans.

    A HOUSE COMMITTEE IS EXPECTED TO VOTE ON THE INTERNET GAMBLING PROHIBITION ACT IN MID-MAY.

    I’M DANIELLE ADDAIR.
