Barack Obama accused of illegal online gambling

On the campaign’s national website, Obama ask for donation between $5 and $2300 in exchange of a chance for every donor to be chosen as one of the 10 supporters to meet Barack backstage in Denver.

Tom Barrett, head of the Minnesota Gambling Control Board, consider that this is an illegal raffle and a violation of the of Minnesota gambling laws.

Nick Kimball, a spokesman for the Obama campaign in Minnesota, says that “we are not conducting a raffle of any kind“.

As far as I can see, there is no more such offer on the Donation section of Barack Obama web site.

    First after reading this headline, it was kind of funny. Then, the humor evaporated and was replaced by disgust. Our government’s backward ass policies on criminalizing online gambling more or less cut our industry in half. For those that have been around a while, the infamous “Black Sunday” and the ridiculous “Port Authority Bill” among other pivotal disasters within our industry come immediately to mind.
