Is Giving To Obama ‚lottery’ Called Illegal Gambling?

Obama’s fundraiser, distributed via Internet inside Colorado, said: „If you make a donation of $5 or more between now and midnight on July 31st, you could be one of 10 supporters chosen to fly to Denver and spend two days and nights at the convention, meet Barack backstage, and watch his acceptance speech in person. Each of the ten supporters who are selected will be able to bring one guest to join them.”

„I think he’s walking a very thin rope and probably is in violation of state and federal laws by doing that,” he said. It would be different if Obama fans were given the option of entering their name for the prize of a trip to Denver without contributing money, he said.

There are ambiguous interpretations of a law from the 60’s (30 years before the internet) that attempt to make it appear illegal. There has not been any attempted charge for sports betting. Remember a few years ago when Rick Tocchett was caught running a gambling ring inside the USA? The FBI had a list of every client of his….the only ones that got charged were those running the show, not the bettors.

Is National Bingo Night Illegal?

i ask this because of the internet gambling bill, and any other state state law that prohibits gaming. Gaming is up to the states to inforce. Even if the network gets by with this, the internet gaming bill makes online game betting illeagal on a national level so i would assume that we should make all national level betting illegal. and to buy a bingo card is a bet. this would allow leaving betting and gaming up to the states. now iam a poker player, but i do belive in laws. and it outrages me that little kids can think its good to gamble. gambling takes years of learning to be consistent. so do you guys and gals think national bingo night is legal?
