I got this and wondered just who the opponents are. I can find nothing relevant via google other than some obscure references to anti-gambling zealots. Not relevant.

You probably know about our win this summer in the U.S. House Financial Services Committee. By a bipartisan vote of 41-22, the Congress passed out of committee a bill that will create a safe and regulated U.S. market for online poker.
What you may not know is that a small, but loud group of anti-poker zealots are re-doubling their efforts to stop us from succeeding this fall. That’s why we need your help.
Will you join the PPA to help us secure your right to play online poker?
Skilled poker players know that you have take advantage of optimal situations and an opponent’s weaknesses. We’re in just this position now. This summer we scored a big win for the millions of Americans who enjoy online poker. But this win is just the first step. Though our opponents’ chip stack is low, they’re not out and they have pledged to fight even harder this fall.
We don’t need much from each individual poker player, but we need every one of us on the team to win. For just $20 you can be part of the team and make a huge difference.
