Manhattan US attorney files charges against major online poker companies

The Manhattan U.S. attorney has filed charges against principals of PokerStars, Full Tilt and Absolute Poker. Devastating stuff -- bank fraud, money laundering and illegal gambling.

Interesting in context of lawmakers being wined and dined by PokerStars and urged to pave way for web poker.

News release and indictment at right.
