U.S. Online Poker Players Get Political

September 22, 2009 (PAP Newswire) -- The PPA (Poker Players Alliance), an organization that lobbies the U.S. Congress for better and more fair online gaming legislation, recently sent out an email alert to all its members asking them to take a moment to contact their representatives to help win them over to the cause.
