Seniors upset over bingo ban

A bingo ban at a Wisconsin senior center is angering some long-time players. Officials with Milwaukee's Community Centers claim playing for money violates policy and sets a bad example for children. But some seniors say that policy is unfair.

One group has been gathering at the same community center every Tuesday for more than 15 years. The winner of each game used to get 50 cents. Not anymore.

Recreation officials explain the seniors can play for a prize as long as no cash changes hands.
