        Right when it seemed like things were looking up another setback in Washington for the online gambling law....

        We can thank Democrat, Tommy Wells who plans on repealing the new law to legalize online gambling. He will introduce legislation this fall that would prevent the online gambling to move forward.

        His reason?  The online gambling bill became law in a devious manner by slipping it into the budget and didn't give him full understanding of the implications. Wells claims he is not opposed to online gambling but is not clear on how it will benefit the district. Adding "It's not good government. It's not transparent."

        Legislator Jack Evans also indecisive, called a hearing on the DC Lottery's plan for implementing online gambling and was decided to defer the gambling law pending broader public opinion of desirability.

        Evans expressed to Wells that he did not think the new online gambling law should be repealed at this stage. He plans on holding another hearing in October when the public consultation is over.

        Michael A. Brown, the author of the online gambling law, reacted to Wells stating that no other council members have objected to the manner in which the bill was passed. He has supported the public consultation prior to the implementation. Brown said, "I want it to be done right, not fast."

        Wells' weight on the Council was weakened last week when Council Chairman Kwame Brown removed him from the chairmanship of the transportation committee. Wells said that some of his colleagues on the council were uncomfortable with his commitment to ethics and good government.

        What i find interesting is Well's reasoning "The online gambling bill became law in a devious manner by slipping it into the budget and didn't give him full understanding of the implications". Isn't that exactly how online gambling was banned when the Bush administration came out of no where like a thunder clap?

        It amazes me how one man can throw a monkey wrench it the whole thing. Makes you wonder, is it for notoriety, 15 minutes of fame or to move farther up the ladder in congress.

        If you're trying to get banned I think you got off to a great start.
