Alabama Senator and Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions may have reignited the online gambling debate after he said he was "shocked" by the current administration's interpretation of the 1961 Wire Act. In 2011 the Department of Justice ruled the Wire Act was narrow in scope and only governed interstate sports gambling. That ruling was a reversal from previous interpretations of the law which included online gambling. Sessions says he would revisit the law if he is confirmed after being questioned about it by online gambling opponent Sen. Lindsay Graham. "I did oppose [the DOJ ruling] when it happened, and it seemed to me to be unusual. I would revisit it or make a decision about it based on careful study. I haven't gone that far to give you an opinion today," Sessions testified.
