    Default The Real Deal?

    xxxhttp://www.eog.com/news/full-article.aspx?id=21000


    While the New York Police smashed an illegal sports betting ring believed to have processed $500 million in bets through the Costa Rica based website 50ksports.com, USA Today reveals that American land-based casinos and American Indian tribes have spent millions lobbying Congress last year as lawmakers considered legislation to ban online betting.

    Isn't bribing politicians illegal in most 3rd world countries?

    Bribes indeed are illegal....

    But a perfectly structured bribe is called lobbying and that is legal.

    If an affiliate program is not small affiliate friendly (especially small US Affiliate), then they are NOT Affiliate Friendly!

    You need to watch the APCW perspectives at you tube - they explain exactly who funded which politician's anti online gambling votes.

    Not sure, although it is likely covered in the APCW magazine. You could go to APCW.org and find out.
