  (Casino Affiliate, the world's largest and longest-running affiliate marketing directory for the online gambling and poker industries, has published an interview with John Pappas, the PPA's Executive Director and its most visible representative.

In an interview held recently on location at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in Las Vegas,'s video channel CAP TV asked Mr. Pappas what members of the online casino industry as well as everyday poker players can do to help support the organization's new National Poker Week movement and its larger political goals.

"We're really encouraging the poker community to stand up for our game now by signing up for our petition," Pappas told CAP TV's Greg Kroleski. "You can go to, where we have a quarter of a million Americans who have signed the petition [addressed] to President Obama."

"We're going to deliver [the petition] to him on National Poker Week, so we're building up to that," Pappas continued, "and then during National Poker Week, we're asking people to write letters and call their members of Congress and do that right through our website,"

As National Poker Week kicked off on Monday, the online poker petition had passed the 350,000-signature mark. View (and sign) it at

During the course of the interview, Pappas also spoke about the challenges of mobilizing Internet gamers to political action, considering the fact that the community is a virtual one and not accustomed to congregating together. He also went on to speak of the importance of achieving political support on a national level, since state-by-state efforts, although important, don't ultimately achieve the goal in the same way.

"We're happy to provide the PPA with a forum for getting the message out about National Poker Week," commented Bob Rains, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Casino Affiliate Programs. "We here at also support the larger effort to get online poker fully legalized in the United States. Not only is this goal of direct interest to all of us in Internet gambling and poker affiliate marketing world, it's also a worthy cause for American civil liberties in general."
