As you might know, the USA White House now supports a special section ‘We The People’ at WhiteHouse.gov where anyone can air his or her views concerning any burning issues. As president Barack Obama says, this is a perfect way to be open for people and their daily problems and requirements.
On September 22 an extraordinary petition was posted at ‘We The People’ – it was a voice of director of grassroots and external affairs for the Poker Players Alliance Drew Lesofski raised for support of the legalization and regulation of poker (both ordinary and online) in the USA.
To say that White House was stunned is to say nothing, but the most fascination part was still to come. Officials did not believe that this petition would receive over 5000 within 1 month to be reviewed. To their utter surprise the petition received the desired number of supporters in just three days! This means that on October 22, 2011 the US government will review this wondrous petition and poker may restore its legal position.
