As we’ve talked about before … success for poker in Congress will require more than just being on the right side of the law … it means convincing senators and representatives that we even belong on their radar … and ultimately are worth risking some political capital for on poker’s behalf. We already have tons of Congresspeople on our side. And tons clearly against. Now it’s a matter of not just swaying the uncommitted middle our way, but also convincing them these issues even matter.

To this extent, as Congressfolk come back to session this week, the PPA is taking out full-page ads (above) in the three most relevant rags to DC insiders — The Hill, Roll Call, and Politico — parlaying the exposure of cheating scandals in the online poker industry into an important message about the need to effectively protect US citizens.

Good stuff, I gotta think.
