RAWA hearing falls short on facts – leaves questions on state rights
The two witnesses that helped to actually put a negative spin on RAWA were Parry Aftab and Andrew Moylan. Aftab is an attorney that specializes in Internet Privacy and Security. Moylan is a well known states’ rights advocate.
Moylan chose to focus primarily on the issue of states rights and how they applied to RAWA. He asserted that the bill was an overreach of authority by the federal government and that the bill would restrict states’ rights. Interestingly enough, Moylan is opposed to gambling but his belief in states’ rights allows him to put those oppositions aside.
