Mary Bono Supports Online Gambling

Former Republican Congresswoman, Mary Bono, has joined forces with former Republican Representative Mike Oxley, to front a group called "Coalition for Consumer and Online Protection" which is a pro-online-gambling group. The group has launched a campaign against the banning of online gambling by Congress.

The group, known simply as C4COP, has stated that a ban on online gambling would simply not work mostly because what it will do is limit each state's constitutional rights and would repress innovation and growth. This position has pitted them directly against the Coalition Against Internet Gambling led by billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

Mary Bono said in a statement released by C4COP, "Congress can neither legislate the Internet away, nor consumer demand for online products. We need to do all we can to make sure that the Internet is a safe place for businesses, consumers, families and children. I am proud to be a part of the Coalition for Consumer and Online Protection to make sure that people know the risks behind implementing such a ban".
