RAWA FLANKING MOVE BY FAILED PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE
09th May, 2016 at 22:13:35
Sen. Lindsey Graham tries to pull a fast one by including failing RAWA language in a major Appropriations bill.
In a sly move that could rank with the 2006 passage of the UIGEA attached to a security bill, failed presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham has inserted language from the rapidly failing Restoration of America's Wire Act in a massive federal Appropriations Bill in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
RAWA is widely believed to be the work of lobbyists engaged by anti-online gambling land casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who has been trying unsuccessfully to push the measure through both the House and Senate of the US Congress for the past three years (see previous reports).
Media reports from the USA Monday claimed that Graham received support from Adelson for his failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination this year, and in a quid pro quo has inserted the internet gambling ban provision into the spending bill.
The RAWA language was inserted into the huge spending bill in the Senate "at the request of Senator Graham," according to Senate Appropriations Committee spokesperson Chris Gallegos.
Here is the language that Graham has inserted into the Appropriations bill:
