Washington State gubernatorial candidate Dori Monson indicated that he does not support the current Internet gambling prohibition in the state, that could punish those who choose to gamble/play poker online with up to 10 years in prison.

He pointed out that the law puts playing online poker on the same level as a child pornography conviction, and a felony can mess up a person's life for a very long time.

"You have some college kid that's playing poker on his computer and you're going to give him a felony for it," Rossi said. "It doesn't make sense. It doesn't fit the crime."

While showing his opposition to the law, Rossi did not commit to actively trying to overturn it himself. Monson asked if he would push for legislation to overturn the poker ban, and Rossi's response was, "I would sign legislation that would overturn it, certainly."
