Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist was one of the leading proponents of the recent piece of legislation that was just passed in the House and Senate that forces banks and credit card companies to refuse payments to offshore gambling sites.
It is clear that Mr. Frist is good at expressing concern about what he thinks is the problem with gambling. He says, for example, “Gambling is a serious addiction that undermines the family, dashes dreams and frays the fabric of society.” You can read this quote here. Hmmm… What I’d like to ask Mr. Frist is why if he feels this way about gambling did he take contributions from Harrahs in ’98 and 2000. Did he recently have a change of heart about gambling?
Did he not realize that gambling takes place at Harrahs? Or is he just being one big annoying hypocrite? I bet I know the answer. But I fear making such a bet, because in doing so, I might undermine my family or dash a dream or fray the fabric of society.
Thanks Steve for pointing out this Frist hypocrisy.
