South Carolina state represenative Willian Scarborough, previously mentioned here for being the first Palmetto State legislator of 2007 to willingly beat his head against the poker wall, has cleared his first and likely last hurdle in his attempt to make South Carolina home poker games legal.
Scarborough, a Republican, introduced a bill this year that would make un-raked poker games a lawful activity. According to CardPlayer, that bill has made it out of subcommittee and will be presented to the House Judiciary Committee this week.

For the time being.
