Is Barney Frank a Betting Man?


The Massachusetts Democrat is promising an overturn of the online gambling ban. Not this minute, but soon.

"I'm not ready to give you more details, but I will be by next week or so. We'll talk more about it later. There's no urgency on it," he said.

A spokesman for the Massachusetts Democrat said on Wednesday Frank was considering legislation to repeal the ban but had not drafted a bill and had no timetable for action.

It'd be a shame if the Wayne Allyn Root campaign had its momentum snuffed out so quickly by this. But I'm guessing gamblers are willing to pay that price.
