Re: Politician behind Online Poker's UIGEA Indicted for Bank Fraud

This got me all excited that Bernie Sanders had been charged, he's the one who actually wrote it. He's been in the news for possible bank fraud, but it seemed rather minor, and unlikely to result in charges.

In case anyone wonders how Bernie Sanders got the pathway to the Senate, it's because of his work on the UIGEA.

I thought it was Bernie's wife who is under investigation for Wire/Bank Fraud? From one of her charities, if I remember correctly?

There were several convicted of pedophilia. The article lists them under the sitting president at the time.
Longest wiki page, ever.

Why did you fail to accommodate a simple request for a source link?
