Keno to raise tax in Washington State

11-29-2009

The PoliticsFriday column in the Seattle Weekly, stating on its actions to collect up to $30 million in tax incomes by making it possible for 4 minute keno to be played in the state, emphasizes the obvious moral two-sidedness of state politicians on the subject.

Washington State is infamous for strict anti-online gambling regulations that place players in the felony C category; even though an extensive and increasing range of land gambling activities are allowed and even promoted by the state legislators.

Columnist Caleb Hannan says that state Senator Margarita Prentice only dislikes certain kinds of gambling, and points out that she is an ‘improbable ally’ of governor Chris Gregoire, who might have doubts in how 4 minute keno might be allowed so as to raise taxes to around a $2.6 billion state budget shortfall.

“State Sen. Margarita Prentice is no one’s idea of a friend to Washington gamblers,” written by Hannan. She added that in 2006, she sponsored legislation that made online poker a crime in proportion to possessing kids porn or torturing an animal.”
