The American Gaming Association is all riled up at a suggestion to ban government credit cards at casinos. The association says such a move singles them out and reflects a misunderstanding of the gaming industry. They want to know if such a ban would prevent government employees from renting a hotel room in a casino, or using retail and restaurants as well. The recommendation came from the Department of Defense, after an audit revealed DOD workers used their government credit cards to rack up nearly a million dollars on gambling in Las Vegas and Atlantic City.
