The PPA accuses Rose of inserting his personal politics into the fight to legalize Web poker.
From the PPA:
I. Nelson Rose, a law professor with expertise on gaming law, has chosen to attack online poker supporter Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX). These attacks were made on CalvinAyre.com on October 21 st (listen here
), on OnTilt Radio on December 5th, and in a recent column in Poker Player Magazine (here
). The attacks center not on issues of the legislation itself, or even of poker-related issues. Rather, they focus on Rep. Barton’s politics and on Rose’s apparent disagreement with them. This is unfortunate and, in the opinion of the Poker Players Alliance, very misguided.
