Jay, the odds I got were 4 to1 that the House Judicial Committee
would initiate impeachment proceedings against the President
"Initiating impeachment proceedings" is easier than getting

The largest bet that Sportsbook.com would allow was US$100.
I only bet US$10 to see how Sportsbook.com's processes
worked with respect to fees taken and withdrawals authorised
