The newly formed Vegas casino-backed online poker grassroots organization FairPlayUSA told the Las Vegas Review Journal Thursday that they are not doing lobbying of any kind, but rather outreach.

The group’s advisors include former Homeland Security chief and one-time Pennsylvania Governor Republican Tom Ridge. 

"The federal laws aren't working," she said. "We need to fix the system," Executive Director Marisa McNee said.

McNee confirms FairPlayUSA initially received some startup funding from MGM Resorts International and Caesars Entertainment Corp. but declined to discuss specific contributions. 

"There is a need for advocates from varied points of view," said Alan Feldman, senior vice president public affairs at MGM Resorts. "We are certainly supportive of their efforts to bring in law enforcement and Internet security experts."
