In Manhattan today, federal prosecutors released an indictment against the founders of the two largest companies to offer online poker to Americans, Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars, charging them with fraud and seeking more than $3 billion in penalties.

What was more remarkable, however, was the near-unanimity of the vote: just 4 Republicans dissented, while 2 others did not vote. (Democrats voted against the proposal 189-0).
