Congress wants you to gamble...for the kids


(Robert F. Bukaty - Associated Press)

What better way to show your support for America’s kids than to engage in a little wholesome, old-fashioned.. .gambling?

The Congressional Award Foundation, a charity established by Congress to recognize youth achievement, is set to raise some bucks at its annual poker tournament, slated for July 17 at the Liaison Hotel on Capitol Hill. The event typically brings together poker pros, like World Series of Poker great Phil Ivey, members of Congress and their staff — and reps from the foundation’s corporate sponsors.

So let’s get this straight — one could spend the evening schmoozing and gambling in a hotel called the Liaison and claim that it’s all for charity?

Hey, anything for the children.
