Holder is no friend of online gambling

President Obama's nominee for the important national law enforcement post of Attorney General, Eric Holder (see previous InfoPowa report) has been accepted by the Senate Judiciary Committee by 75 votes to 21, making his appointment as the first African-American AG a virtual certainty. His nomination apparently achieved strong bi-partisan support Monday.

Holder has a record of anti-online gambling sentiment, and was outspoken against the industry in recent nomination hearings for the post, where he was led in his statements on the industry by arch-Internet gaming opponent Jon Kyl.

A small group of Republicans said they opposed Holder, arguing that he was hostile to gun control and not fully supportive of the war on terrorism.
