Enter the individual states.

Barney Frank Talks Online Poker Legislation With Jay Leno

The poker industry wondered whether an appearance by chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Barney Frank on the Jay Leno Show Tuesday night would provide an opportunity for him to discuss the legalization of online poker.

He didn’t let the industry down.

Said one industry observer:  “I know when most celebs go on to Leno or prime time talk shows they promote their (own) show, or movie…but didn’t it seem like Barney was there to promote internet gambling?
