Washington’s Online Gambling Law Is Already Being Misused

June 17th, 2006


Remember this post, made only 10 days ago, where I predicted that Washington state’s online gambling law would be misused in ways the legislature didn’t intend? Well the first person charged under the law was not actually caught gambling; rather, he runs a web site that has information about online gambling. This constitutes transmitting “gambling information,” which is illegal under the new law. It will be interesting to see if he gets convicted.
