Political and online gambling observers were debating the possible impact on the Democrat cause this week of the disclosure that Hunter Biden, son of Democrat Vice Presidential nominee Joe Biden, is an active Washington lobbyist with an online gambling client.
 
Hunter Biden and his firm, Oldaker, Biden and Belair, have been engaged to lobby for the expansion of legalised online gambling, lobbying on behalf of a law firm that represents Party Gaming founder and major shareholder Russ Deleon. De Leon is married to fellow Party Gaming founder Ruth Parasol.
