Was ranting on twitter about this, but figured a better place for a discussion would be here.
As a NYer who is passionate about DFS, I found this email I received from my Assemblymember quite upsetting.
Obviously the email is poorly written and likely composed by an intern or something, but that isn’t the most upsetting part. The part that really bothers me is what seems to be a total lack of understanding of the current situation regarding the legality of DFS in NY on her part. She drops some concepts in there that are sort of “buzz words,” but she doesn’t seem to care whatsoever.
My impression is that this woman is basically saying “I’m waiting to see what the AG says.” To me, she is basically shedding responsibility to take a stance on the issue. This is particularly troublesome given the fact that DK and FD reached a settlement with the AG that was specifically designed to pause litigation and pursue a legislative solution. What was the point of the settlement if legislators are waiting to see what the AG ultimately does anyway?
