Harrah's Backing Barney Frank Bill

Barney_frank Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) introduced his only reason why we're still doing this site anti-UIGEA bill at a press conference this morning.

Frank's bill estimates over $63 billion in revenues for the government if it regulated online gaming over the next 10 years. Interestingly, Harrah's Entertainment is also backing the bill, which probably has everything nothing to do with the "maybe" hiring of ex-Party CEO Mitch Garber.

We'll post a video from the press conference if/when it becomes available (readers, please send link if you find it). In the meantime, read about Harrah's backing of the bill here and the press release on today's press conference here.

UPDATE: Good recap of the bill by Bluff here.

Funny how things change, only a few years ago Harrah's Entertainment was one of the largest political contributors to Bill Frist's campaign.... Fuck Harrah's
