Illinois didn’t pay out money owed to lottery winners and they are outraged!

After Illinois refused to pay money owed to lottery winners, they are now seeking legal advice so they can fight back for what is rightfully theirs . Attorney Tom Zimmerman is representing some of the winners. The state has failed to pay back a total of $288 million dollars.

From Hillary 4 Prisoner:

What happened? Illinois blamed their failure on their ‘budget crisis’. And if anyone won more than $600 from a lottery ticket, the state refused point-blank to pay it. Nevertheless, television ads continue to run and promote the lottery to millions of residents. Is this fair? No! Learn more below!

One female lottery winner, Susan Rick, opened up about how the State screwed her out of thousands during an interview with Inside Edition.

Rick said: “We won. We finally can have a comfortable life. Suddenly you’re gonna pull the rug out from under us. We had a ticket for $250,000.”

Wow, this is ridiculous! How about I don’t pay my state taxes? Let’s see, I’ll get fined for one and then they’ll want to put liens on my belongings! How is the state getting away with this??

Correct me if I’m wrong.. but isn’t the lottery prize comprised of the money people pay in buying tickets etc? If so, shouldn’t that money ONLY be used for that purpose? If it’s gone hasn’t someone misappropriated funds? Wouldn’t that be a crime?

    Thar Republican run state lotto refusing to pay out is malfeasance on a colossal scale. Watta you mean it is Democrat run? Democrats would not refuse to distribute the peoples money. Trust them they are professionals, but so are con-men.

      Illinois is most definitely a DEMOCRATIC run State. Some consider it being controlled by the MOB. You can rest assured that it isn’t a REPUBLICAN run state.

    It’s like the SS we all pay into each pay check . Yet the delusional democrats took 2 billon out of it years ago and never payed it back like they said they would . they ripped off thousands of people that payed in and never got their money back . How can they keep taking in all the money for lottery tickets and not pay winners over 600.00 . Where does all that money go ???? Some one is getting rich from it . And why do people keep buy them knowing they will get ripped off if they win ???? More corruption from the delusional democrats . Don’t be surprised if they don’t use that money to fond old Joe . And yes that is a crime . Just add it to all the rest of the crimes they do
