    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two U.S. lawmakers have urged the U.S. Justice Department to suspend its investigation of European Internet gambling companies for possible criminal violations that occurred before Congress passed a law in 2006 to crack down on online gambling.

    Rep. Robert Wexler, a Florida Democrat, and Rep. Steve Cohen, a Tennessee Democrat, warned U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey in separate letters the issue could lead to a potentially damaging trade spat between the United States and the European Union at the World Trade Organization.

    Small world as I know both Cohen and Wexler......Both are liberal Democrats of the Jewish faith (I am of the same faith but a conservative Republican but will cross party lines).....Both are attorneys.....Cohen,from Memphis,was in the State Senate in Nashvegas for years and is best known (positively) as the the one who took on the good old boy network to get the State Lottery passed.......Wexler was at the University of Florida and graduated the same year, I think, as moi. In fact, one of Wexler's former roommates (one of my college buds) was in town from New York a couple weekends ago and Wexler was a topic of discussion......We call this Jewish geography in the South,lol.:D

    Nash, they sound as if they are smart guys. The US need to keep their own backyard clean before they call the fumigators.
