A Rare Political Message
I received this email ("from Greg Raymer", whom I have met and who seems like a very nice guy) this morning and felt it was worth sharing with my limited audience:
In our ongoing effort to provide PokerStars players with the best online poker experience, we are writing today to alert you to an important vote in the United States Congress that will impact your ability to enjoy poker online. We need your help to support this bill.
On Tuesday July 27th, the House Financial Services Committee will vote on H.R. 2267, the Internet Gambling, Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act. This bill will secure your right to play online poker in the United States. Passage of this bill is the first step to undo the ill-conceived Unlawful Internet Gambling and Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA).
Your member of Congress serves on this committee and will vote on this bill, and we need your help.
Please join us and the Poker Players Alliance by going to http://www.pokerstars.standupforpoker.com. This website provides you three simple - and quick - ways to contact your Representative and urge their support for H.R. 2267.
