41 Cited for Gambling After Warehouse Bust (WRAL.com, 03/26/07)
“Police cited 41 people with gambling after executing a search warrant at a local warehouse with the help of federal agents and a National Guard unit. Police said they asked for backup Friday night because they believed drugs and guns would be inside.”


Show Congress that the Little Guy Can be a Powerful Force (PocketFives, 03/26/07)
“Recently named Chairman of the Board of the PPA, D’Amato brings an experienced, hard-nosed edge to the organization, helping the major online poker proponent in its mission to call for regulation, rather than prohibition, of online poker. The former Senator will appear on the PocketFives.com Podcast on Thursday, March 29, 2007 to discuss his motivation for becoming involved with the PPA.”

Proposed card room in Lodi: No reason it can’t be clean, safe and well-operated (Lodi News-Sentinel, 3/26/07)
“The morality of playing cards for money has been debated for hundreds of years. In a perfect world there would be no need for cards. However, considering the total amount of temptation available to each and every person on this Earth, it seems to me that believing card rooms to be a primary cause of social degeneration is, to a certain degree, puritanical. Those who are for whatever reason predisposed to recklessly risk their or their families’ livelihoods have many avenues to squander away their money.”
