Ky. governor seeking to block online gambling


www.forbes.com

FRANKFORT, Ky. - Kentucky's pro-gambling governor is looking to make sure all bets are off for more than 140 online gambling Web sites that operate in the state known for the world's biggest horse race.

Gov. Steve Beshear said his administration has asked a Franklin County Circuit Court judge to give the state control of 141 gambling Web site domain names. Beshear said he's looking to restrict Kentuckians' access to Web sites with names that include some of the most popular gambling sites for U.S. players: bodoglife.com, doylesroom.com and fulltiltpoker.com.

A hearing is scheduled for Thursday before Judge Thomas Wingate.

This to me just smacks of Big Brother. It starts at gambling sites, but where would it end? I don't think this has a chance in hell of ever passing, but it's quite chilling indeed. I also wonder of there may be a conflict of interest since horse racing is so prevalent in Kentucky.

More and more stories such as this are popping up. Troubling times.
