    Default Reuters story on the Judiciary Committee hearing

    The House Judiciary Committee hearing on Internet gambling was covered by Reuters ...

    The Democratic head of the House Judiciary Committee voiced frustration on Wednesday about what he said are disparities in the enforcement of U.S. Internet gambling laws.


    Chairman John Conyers questioned "the selective nature" of Internet gambling enforcement and said a ban enacted by lawmakers last year could end up hurting U.S. relations overseas.
    "Continuing with the same old failed policies for the sake of feel-good politics doesn't make sense," Conyers, of Michigan, said at a hearing on the issue.

    At Wednesday's hearing, Conyers and other committee members questioned why the Justice Department had not sought to prosecute other forms of Internet gambling, such as online horse-racing.

    "To cherry pick ... is what I find to be particularly intellectually dishonest," said Rep. Robert Wexler, a Florida Democrat who has introduced a bill that would exempt poker and some other games from the Internet gambling ban.
    Conyers also wanted to know why horse-racing and some other forms of gambling "will continue to proceed unfettered" under new regulations proposed last month by the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve.
