Attorney General Alberto Gonzales lied again today, or rather, was dogmatic in his speaking, when asked by Senator Jon Kyl from Arizona what his position and views are on Internet gambling.
Alberto Gonzalez said that he agrees with Kyl’s views on the issue and that there is money laundering going on heavily in the industry and that Internet gambling is highly addictive.
Gonzales told Kyl in the hearing that the Department of Justice was also moving forward with regulations that they must come up with as declared by the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act.
The problem with Gonzales’ testimony is that the other senators listening, who have no understanding or interest in Internet gambling, now only have the knowledge that Internet gambling hastens money laundering and facilitates problem gambling. However, these are opinions not fact.
Fact, is a Harvard University study of over 40,000 participants that found conclusively that only 0.4% had, or were prone to develop gambling problems as a result of easy access to gambling online.
Fact, is that the majority of major Internet gambling operations are run by publicly traded companies in the United Kingdom. They are run and licensed by governments in Germany, France, Italy, and yes the small island nations of Antigua & Barbuda, the Isle of Man, Curacao, Costa Rica, etc. By Gonzales’ standards he is accusing those countries of laundering money to fund terrorism.
These misunderstandings and misrepresentations are exactly why Casino Gambling Web is sending representatives to Washington D.C. to lobby on behalf of the American people who love to gamble responsibly online. The mission of CGW is to give the actual facts about Internet gambling to Congressmen and Senators so the millions of Americans who love to gamble online can gain their freedom to do so back.
