BLATANT INACCURACIES IN STATEMENT ON INTERNET GAMBLING

National Association of Convenience Stores executive should really do his homework.

The trade association representing convenience store operators, the National Association of Convenience Stores, re-published an op-ed article by one of its executives this week, in the process exposing some glaring inaccuracies and an apparent lack of knowledge on the subject - intrastate online lottery sales and gambling.

Lyle Beckwith, the association's senior vice president of government relations, took a stand supporting the Restoration of America's Wire Act, a proposal before Congress which seeks to ban most forms of online gambling and has the potential to play havoc with online ticket sale revenues in a number of US states.

The NACS' preoccupation with online ticket sales is possibly rooted in fears by its members that this will reduce the need for the public to visit their stores for tickets and results, an outcome that has not yet been conclusively demonstrated.

In an article published in the Washington DC publication Roll Call this week, Beckwith made some startling claims, among them an assertion that today's sophisticated and efficient geo-location technology can be circumvented in "about two minutes" using a search engine.

This rather offhand dismissal of an advanced technology that has been working effectively in demanding regulated online gambling jurisdictions like Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey is used by Beckwith to argue that intrastate legalisation of internet gambling is ineffective, justifying his call to politicians to support the RAWA and a general federal ban.

He went on to claim that there is virtually no such thing as intrastate gambling, because it is a simple matter for anyone, anywhere
