Online Gambling Condemned in Republican Manifesto

Republicans still negative about the pastime

Presidential elections in the US are getting closer, and two main political parties keep striving to attract as much positive attention to themselves, knowing their every move has been scrutinized and dissected to smallest pieces.

Among those closely following the situation are surely online gambling lobbyists, and they most likely won’t be glad to hear about the explicit opposition to the pastime expressed in the manifesto issued by the Republican National Committee this week.

Under the "Making the Internet Family Friendly" part of the manifesto, the party noted that: "Millions of Americans suffer from problem or pathological gambling that can destroy families. We support the prohibition of gambling over the Internet and call for reversal of the Justice Department’s decision distorting the formerly accepted meaning of the Wire Act that could open the door to Internet betting."
