Legalized sports betting isn’t just a win for degenerate gamblers … it could also have a real impact in reducing violent crimes and sex trafficking … so says Senator Cory Booker.
The NJ politician is clearly fired up about the new Supreme Court ruling that essentially allows states to legalize sports betting … a cause Booker has been championing for years.
Booker tells TMZ Sports … people have been betting on sports illegally for decades — and illegal sports gambling is often tied to violent crime and sex trafficking.
So, legalizing it will allow the states to regulate sports betting … which, in turn, could have a real impact in reducing crime connected to illegal gambling rings.
Booker also says he’s pumped about all the tax revenue legal sports betting will generate — since experts estimate people have been illegally betting hundreds of BILLIONS of dollars a year.
