“All in for Stuart Bain” will use social media and Internet marketing to raise money for the Bain campaign. The so-called money-bomb campaign also raises issue with efforts by Republican incumbent Bob Goodlatte to ban real-stakes online poker illegal.
Bain is a member of Poker Players Alliance, a national group of poker players formed in opposition to laws like the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, which made online real-stakes poker illegal. Goodlatte sponsored the UIGEA and a similar bill, HR 4411, the Internet Gambling Prohibition and Enforcement Act.
The money-bomb aspect to the fundraising effort works by encouraging supporters to donate within the same narrow time frame and increasing the amount of campaigning during that time – like a short burst of sprinting to get ahead in a footrace.
Bain’s money bomb website is www.StuartBain.com.
