UIGEA

A letter is circulating around Washington urging constraint when it comes to repealing the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA), which essentially outlaws most forms of online gambling including online poker.

Gambling911.com reported last week on how those in the GOP were looking to stop any new legislation from going through but we now have a Democrat coming on board for support as well. 

From Pokerati.com:

The PPA isn't giving up on moving Barney Frank and Jim Goodlatte's online gambling bills through Congress before (or after) the June 1 UIGEA deadline. In response to their efforts - and perhaps testament to their progress - one of the original UIGEAers Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) has joined forces with his colleague Rep. Rick Boucher (D-VA) in a letter encouraging all congress people to resist any sensible appeal to legalize internet gambling.

They seem to be playing fierce and maybe even a touch dirty. The bipartisan nature of the letter is sure to catch some undecided Congressional eyes - and in it they drop a story about a college student committing suicide after going uber-deep into online gambling debt.
