How Washington Opened the Floodgates to Online Poker, Dealing Parents a Bad Hand

In 2007, the head of the FBI’s Cyber Crime Fraud unit, Leslie Bryant, issued a stern warning to Americans: “You can go to Vegas. You can go to Atlantic City. You can go to a racetrack. You can go to those places and gamble legally. But don’t do it online. It’s against the law.”

Chaffetz leads Maryland Democrat on tour of Moab area

Congressmen Jason Chaffetz and Elijah Cummings come from different ends of the country, and different ends of the political spectrum.

But the two representatives from the U.S. House aren’t letting their differences stand in the way of a growing bipartisan friendship that could serve as a model for others in Congress to follow.

"So, what do all of you think of Washington?"

The Maryland Democrat looked to his left and his right, surrounded by Republican leaders in rural Utah. State Sen. David Hinkins, R-Orangeville, sought a polite answer, a friendly grin showing below his white Stetson.

Finally, he manages: "It’s a nice tourist spot."

Bruce Adams was equally chummy, a hand draped over the back of Cummings’ chair in the old country dining hall. But the San Juan County Commission chairman wasn’t going to dodge the question.

And that was the point, at least part of it.
