Barney Frank says legalize Net poker

Staff & Wire Reports | If Barney Frank can have his way, America’s poker players will be able to legally enjoy their favorite pastime over the Internet.

Actually, the congressman (D-Mass) would rather the U.S. approve Internet gambling with federal regulatory power that would include taxing the activity. Because of the House and Senate opposition, Frank has been frustrated in his efforts.

In January, after elections that polls show would favor Democrats, Frank expects to have greater control over the U.S. view of Internet gambling.
