Rep. Charlie Dent Retiring from Congress Earlier Than Expected

You know that feeling when you are around a person and you think to yourself, “Why won’t they just go away already?” Well, I’ve never been around him, but I’ve had that feeling about Rep. Charlie Dent (R – Penn.) for a while now. And guess what? He’s actually about to go away! Last fall, Dent announced that he would not run for re-election, but recently, he decided he wasn’t even going to wait for the end of his term and would walk away within the next few weeks. Though he is not my representative (mine is actually worse), I will not miss him.

Colossus II, as it is being

Another RAWA Hearing Expected in House of Representatives in December

The PPA tweeted yesterday that “the on again/off again iGaming hearing in Congress is now on again.” According to the PPA, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz, will be bringing his proposed legislation up in a hearing on December 9. Whether a vote on pushing the bill, HR 707 or the “Restoration of America’s Wire Act” (RAWA), will be held at that time or if it will just be another opportunity to gauge the winds around the Capitol is unknown. What is known is that Chaffetz has had difficulty getting anything going regarding RAWA. Originally filed in mid-2014, RAWA was allegedly written by a lobbyist for billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson and his anti-gambling organization, the Coalition to
