Even the techy website Slashdot has something to say about Washington state’s assertions that linking to online poker sites violates its new law (and is a felony).

You know, Johnny Holmes, the famous former Harris County DA, once said, “The best way to repeal a bad law is to enforce it vigorously.” If these sorts of outrageous claims are what it takes to bring the non-poker media’s attention to poker issues (which will be in play on the U.S. House floor later this month), then maybe the Washington law is actually a good thing for poker.

You just gotta hope not too many Todd Boutes — the guy who ran before being scared into shutting it down — get sacrificed in the process.
