The Washington Post

article from the post, with a few comments.
Congressional Republicans attached a measure cracking down on Internet gambling to a bill aimed at enhancing port security that passed Saturday. (They snuck it in!)

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., and Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., pushed for the gambling provision to be added to the larger bill. (Both huge assholes)

Online gambling is generally illegal in most circumstances, but it is something that is difficult to enforce. The new measure tackles that by prohibiting gamblers from using credit cards, checks and electronic fund transfers to settle their online wagers... (the WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION ruled that this measure violates US free trade agreements)

The House passed a version of the Internet gambling bill in July, but the Senate has taken no action on similar legislation... (Because this is a huge drain on resources which would be better spent elsewhere)

The new gambling provision is not expected to affect gambling at tracks or casinos. (OR online gambling for horse racing, lotteries, and fantasy sports, because they know how to lobby the "religious right")
