The final verse has been written for the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election. That verse reads simply as a surprising status quo from the last two years: Barack Obama retains his job in the White House and Congress remains divided. Until the 113th Congress is sworn in on January 3, 2013, Congress will move into the period colloquially known as the “lame duck session.” It is during this lame duck session that many commentators anticipate that Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ) will introduce federal legislation to authorize i-poker.
Rumors have circulated for several weeks that Senators Reid and Kyl would soon offer i-poker legislation. In mid-October, draft legislation was publicly leaked and has now been widely circulated through the Internet. This is not the first time Senator Reid has floated the concept of federal i-poker legislation during a lame duck session. Following the 2010 mid-term elections, rumors ran rampant that Senator Reid would move quickly to introduce and secure the passage of legislation authorizing i-poker in the U.S. Ultimately, the rumors of 2010 never materialized to fact.
