    Harrah's Adds Lobbying Firm on Internet Gambling
    June 08, 2010

    "Harrah's Entertainment is adding another lobbyist to its standing bet on Internet gaming legislation.

    The Las Vegas-based casino company has built up a sturdy roster of firms to lobby on proposals to legalize Internet gambling. Now, add Capitol Counsel to the list. The firm registered Harrah's as a client on Monday, filing disclosure paperwork showing it will lobby on Internet gaming and taxes.

    Harrah's did not respond to a request for comment, but the company, which owns the World Series of Poker, has publicly supported legalizing Internet gambling.

    Other firms already on the Hill for Harrah's include the Podesta Group, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, and Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck. The company spent $905,515 lobbying in the first quarter of this year, lobbying disclosure records show.

    Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) has introduced a bill that would soften the ban on Internet gambling, giving the Treasury Department jurisdiction to regulate it."
