A recent allegation by Jeremy Johnson has thrown the credibility of Senator Harry Reid into doubt.
Johnson, who has been indicted for marketing fraud and illegal payment processing, has alleged that Reid's positive intentions towards the game are false.
In an alleged conversation with Utah Attorney General John Swallow, Johnson outlined how he helped Ray Bitar and Full Tilt
send Reid $1 million in return for publically supporting online poker
According to the transcripts, Reid polled his constituents and they didn't like online poker
because "it was bad for jobs in Las Vegas". Reid went on to champion a bill that would have seen the game regulated within the US.
Reid's office has strongly denied the claims, stating: "The allegations of bribery by Mr. Johnson, a man with a background of fraud, deception, and corruption, are absurd and utterly false."
