Please legalize sports gambling in Virginia

Currently sports gambling is legalized in both WV and DC.  It's silly to have to drive across borders to place a legal sports wager in this day and age.  Further, there are difficulties in funding an account on the DC Gambet online platform.  Their preferred funding is via online bank Skrill, which has proven to be awful at best.  Skrill does not readily accept direct transfers, it has failed to verify bank accounts, and when funds are transferred from their preferred bank (Bank of America) to Skrill the funds get lost.  Do NOT allow SKRILL to be the online banking platform!  My preference would be to allow cash to be deposited into the sports gambling account at any brick and mortar site providing lottery sales within VA.  I am happy to be a point of contact for issues related to the online sports gambling activities.  Feel free to reach out to me for further information.
