New Jersey Politicians Meet With Gov Chris Christie to Discuss Internet Gambling

New Jersey politicians, including State Senator Raymond Lesniak, were taking part in closed door meetings with Governor Chris Christie to discuss a measure that would legalize online poker.

The objective, Gambling911.com has learned exclusively, is to get something passed through the state House and Senate without the need for a voter referendum.

Christie recently signed a bill that would legalize sports betting in the state following a November voter referendum that was met with more than 65 percent approval.  Lesniak, who co-authored the bill, is now seeking to have a federal ban on sports betting in all but a handful of US states overturned.
