Some of the speakers no doubt had Sheldon Adelson best interests at heart and were pro passing the bill to ban online gambling.
Particularly statements by Les Bernal and John Kindt were strongly opposed to all forms of internet gambling and would be in favor of the Federal government banning state gambling laws. Both seemed to have no real understanding on the topic and simply waffled off a fear mongering speech with no credible facts.
Opposing the restoration of the America’s Wire Act were Parry Aftab and Andy Moylan who stated that a prohibition of online gambling would open up the door to the Black Market. The bill would also impose on state rights that have already legalized and regulated online gambling with great success.
