The Poker Player Alliance President and former New York State Senator, Alfonse D'Amato, appeared on the Howard Stern Show Monday morning discussing the seizure of approximately $40 million in funds from online poker giants PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker.

The Howard Stern Show was actually affected directly by current online gambling prohibition, having entered into juicy ad deals with the likes of now defunct BetonSports.com in the past.  The program no longer accepts ads from Internet gambling establishments.

If you have Sirius/XM radio (or can listen online, a free trial), you can hear Sen. Al D'Amato talk about the PPA on the Howard Stern Show (replay on Ch. 101 starting at 9 a.m. EST)
