slot machines gamblingAn anti-gambling organization has set up a "Hall of Fame" for people involved in the gambling industry. 

The staff at Stop Predatory Gambling, headed by Les Bernal, have inducted a number of people into its Hypocrite Hall of Fame.

Bernal says the list is quite lengthy, first with prominent people in the industry, including President Donald Trump and Adam Silver, the NBA commissioner.

He tells OneNewsNow it's important for the public to know that those named by SPG encourage the public to lose their money in a casino yet you would never see them gambling with their own money.

"And the reason why they don't gamble," says Bernal, "is because it's literally a rigged game against them. They're guaranteed to lose their money."

Billionaire casino operators Steve Wynn, Sheldon Adelson, Richard Fields, and Neil Bluhm are among others on the list.

The list also includes well-known politicians including New York's governor, Andrew Cuomo, Ed Rendell, a former Pennsylvania governor, and Tom Perez, the current DNC chairman.

"They benefit," says Bernal, "when they get the campaign contributions and they get the kind of political clout that comes from partnering with these powerful gambling interests."

Bernal wonders if the business geniuses involved in gaming put their geniuses to work doing positive things for the country, how much better off America would be.
