AIR DATE: July 11, 2011

Major online poker sites have been in a state of siege since the federal government charged them with a host of banking and money laundering offenses. They were charged with violating the prohibition on using US banks to transfer money for online poker. The companies had set up fake Web sites to handle the money, the government says.
