Online Poker in Washington

Listen
AIR DATE: April 15, 2011

While Nevada and New Jersey legislators were thinking about legalizing online poker, it's become the law in the nation's capital. The District of Columbia has authorized its lottery office to run an online poker site and expects to rake in $4.3 million in 2012. Unless, of course, the Congress kills it. It's something of a mystery as to why Congress allowed the district plans to get as far as they have. We find out what's going on and how Congress is likely to react now that it's getting on the radar.
