From the Georgetown Dish:

D.C. officials' eagerness to institute online gambling in the District has caught the 
attention of the New York Times and D.C. taxpayer advocate Marie Drissel, 
who is saying "Basta!" at attempts to roll out the controversial gaming plan alongside 
carmel macchiatos without public hearings.

Responding to D.C. Lottery executive director Buddy Roogow's comment in the Times 
that gamblers will be able to “do it from Starbucks, a restaurant, bar or hotel, or from 
a private residence,” Drissel is asking the coffee chain if it has "taken such a stand and 
are [you] going to allow online gambling in your coffee shops?"
