Sheldon Adelson-Backed Internet Gambling Ban Fails During Lame-Duck Session

Sheldon Adelson

Lame duck session results in failure of Adelson’s internet gambling ban: Reid (Senate Majority Floor Leader) mentioned that if the ban isn’t in the omnibus bill it won’t be in any part during the lame duck. Poker Player Alliance executive director John Pappas hopes to continue keeping out of the omnibus, despite Adelson’s meddling.
