He says as it related to marijuana:
"I can't nullify congressional law. I can't ask the Justice Department to say, 'Ignore completely a federal law that's on the books.' What I can say is, 'Use your prosecutorial discretion and properly prioritize your resources to go after things that are really doing folks damage.'
He should have said this about poker.

And yet, he is willing to ask the Justice Department to completely ignore the Federal Law that states illegals who are in America must be deported. So for marijuana he won't get involved, but with a stroke of a pen he is ordering Eric Holder and Janet Napoletano NOT to enforce Federal Immigration law.
He has also used Executive orders to by pass Congress on two other issues.
You can't make this type of statement and turn around and do the shit he is doing and not be called on it. Simply put he doesn't care about poker, if he did, he would tell Holder to back off the online sites and/or put out an Executive Order to allow it.
Don't hold your breath folks.

We understand your frustration with the current situation, and that frustration is shared by many of us in the poker community. We hope to have positive news soon regarding online poker regulation in the remaining U.S. states.

Kevmath 2017-02-25 18:37:24 @thinkingpoker @gpi @RealKidPoker Are these statements supposed to be made in order of GPI rating?
RedsoxNets5 2017-02-25 18:35:56 Bill Walton is seriously going out of his way to disagree with every single opinion his co-commentator puts out there. This is amazing.

RedsoxNets5 2017-02-25 18:32:40 This is top notch commentating going on in this Kansas Texas game on ESPN. It feels a little more tense than just friendly banter.
JustinBonomo 2017-02-25 18:32:39 @GarryGates @natashabarbour My original tweet probably came off as far more disagreeable and condescending than I intended it
AllenKessler 2017-02-25 18:32:25 @TailsAWagginDC @StakeKings chainsaw is the code
RedsoxNets5 2017-02-25 18:32:05 Other guy: "When you go to Kansas they're so loud you can't hear your fellow broadcaster which in our case is probably a good thing."
JustinBonomo 2017-02-25 18:31:50 @GarryGates @natashabarbour Deleted my original tweet because you're 100% right that I should let this dialogue among women run its course
RedsoxNets5 2017-02-25 18:31:12 Walton: "He's going to the bench is he in foul trouble?" "He has zero fouls. This is 2017 Bill sometimes guys go to the bench to get rest"
Kevmath 2017-02-25 18:29:37 @TKbluffs @Lance_Bradley Did you mean Carlos Mencia?
RedsoxNets5 2017-02-25 18:27:58 @itschrisnow just called his co-commentator a pre-pubescent boy and they pan camera to them. Walton in tie dye tshirt other guy suit and tie

RedsoxNets5 2017-02-25 18:23:51 Is Bill Walton high all the time?
Kevmath 2017-02-25 18:23:41 @Eric_Ramsey people have paid $10,000 to sit there in the padt, you're getting paid to report on them. Seems like you're winning.

JustinBonomo 2017-02-25 18:19:22 @GarryGates @natashabarbour Maybe I shouldn't have used the word "best", but getting rid of archaic gender norms shouldn't be controversial
