Unlucky winners: Illinois lottery halts payouts of over $600 over state budget deadlock

State officials announced Wednesday that winners who are due to receive more than $600 won’t get their money until the state’s ongoing budget impasse is resolved. Players who win up to $600 can still collect their winnings at local retailers.

In a statement, the Illinois Lottery said that its account for writing out checks to winners would be exhausted as of Thursday, and the agency does not have the legal authority to replenish its own funds. According to the Chicago Tribune, officials say the legislature must authorize the state comptroller to release the funds.

Despite the payment delay, lottery officials have continued selling tickets. 

And the idiots in Chicago will still vote for the same crooks, again and again and again.

Mob gambling will continue to do very well here; they don’t tax the winnings, they don’t refuse to pay and Tony ‘Broken Nose’ will cheerfully and safely walk grannie home with her winnings.

NO ONE will be going to jail for this, believe that.

In the same vein; researchers who commit fraud by  ‘cooking’ the data for climate studies and then form a conspiracy by colluding with other researchers to hide the truth and block publication by any scientist not in on the ‘plan’.   Will not be jailed.

Cops who willfully discharge their weapon and injure cilivans due to carelessness or (as in Columbus Ohio this week; officer shot a 4 year old in the leg) callous indifference to the possible result of discharging their weapon near innocents.  Will not be charged, will not be jailed.   (See Puppycide)

Election officials who commit or abet voter fraud (sometimes you think that justice is done but you would be wrong…) as long as it supports the ‘right’ party.  Will not be jailed.

Using the power of their office to benefit their friends and hurt their opponents, ‘Crony Capitalism’.  Will not be reported by the MSM, will not be charged. Will not be jailed.

When this becomes the ‘norm’ then we no longer live in a nation governed by the rule of law.  So when will we do something about it?  our_forefathers_would_be_shooting_by_now_womens_t
