Wednesday June 17,2015 : GOODLATTE HONOURED AS "DIGITAL PATRIOT"
Goodlatte may not be the most popular pol in the online gambling industry, but others like him.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte, a dyed-in-the-wool anti-online gambling politician who has caused more than his fair share of angst and financial loss for the industry in the United States over the past decade or more , appears to be far more popular in the wider digital industry, which has recognised him for his contributions in advancing technology innovation and strengthening patent and intellectual property protection.
At a swish Washington dinner in mid-April the Consumer Electronics Association trade body bestowed its prestigious Digital Patriot honour on Goodlatte for “supporting a legal and regulatory framework that allows the tech industry to flourish.”
