Political High Rollers

Online political betting is becoming more and more popular and the latest political questions at bodog.org are interesting, as well. Here’s one:


Bet On: Will Congress pass legislation requiring all web sites with sexually explicit content to place an official government warning label on their site?

Living in Alabama, here’s the one most interesting to me:

Bet On: Will the former Democratic Governor of Alabama, Don Siegelman, be found guilty of bribery, extortion, obstructing justice, fraud or racketeering?

Any wagers placed after outcome becomes public knowledge will be graded as No Action. No Refunds. No Over limit Wagers. Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman must be found guilty of one or more of the above listed charges for all Yes wagers to be graded a win. If no decision has been made public by July 31st, 2006, all wagers will be graded as No Action. Max $100
