Illinois, the home of President Barack Obama and many other lefties, is currently SCAMMING THE POPULACE by committing lottery fraud. If you win, they don't pay. Welcome to liberal politics. http://bcove.me/oz0klkzr Lottery winners in Illinois may have hit the jackpot - but they have not been paid. The state recently announced that it was not paying out any winnings worth more than $600 until its budget crisis is resolved - but it's still running TV ads promoting the lottery. An attorney representing some of the winners, Tom Zimmerman, has said there is a staggering $288 million in winnings waiting to be paid out.
