ppa.jpgThe Poker Players Alliance has organized a rally in support of a legal case being brought against Washington state’s ban on online poker. Attorney Lee Rousso’s case against the ban is scheduled for another important hearing on May 15th, and to show their support the PPA will hold a rally before the hearing. Professional poker players Barry Greenstein and Andy Bloch have already announced their support for the rally, and all supporters of online poker are invited to attend.

Lee Rousso had been making a run for governor based simply on his desire to overturn the ban on online poker, but recently dropped out of the race due to changes in election law that guaranteed he would not win, as well as the desire to commit full time to his case against the ban, which was finally making progress as Washington’s repeated motions to dismiss the case were denied and further hearings were scheduled.

Washington state’s ban on online poker was signed into law by governor Christine Gregoire, who won the governor’s chair by 133 votes over her opponent, Dino Rossi, who has stated that he would not have signed the bill as it is extremely overbearing, invading people’s homes and privacy, while punishing them in similar fashion to serious crimes. The ban makes playing online poker a Class C felony, which brings the same punishment as would be handed down for possessing child pornography. In order to earn that same punishment a person would have to been convicted of five DUIs or have to have stolen nine cars. It is because of this that many feel that the ban on online poker is excessive.

The rally will take place at the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent, Washington, which is located in King County. The rally will take place on May 15th from 10:30 to 11:30 AM. the full address is below.
