Prosecutors say 2 more men may be linked to lottery riggings

August 24, 2016, 6:21 pm ET

Prosecutors in the case of a former lottery insider convicted last year in a national Hot Lotto jackpot-rigging scandal are seeking to subpoena records from two attorneys they believe could be tied to the plot.

Documents filed on Tuesday by the lead prosecutor in the case, Assistant Iowa Attorney General Rob Sand, seek to subpoena records from Texas attorneys J. Thad Whisenant and Luis Vallejo.

Authorities assert that immediately after investigators attempted to interview Whisenant about the case, he contacted Vallejo, who prosecutors said in the court filing is connected through phone records to one of the men indicted in the scheme.

Lottery winner who spent $20M on boyfriend's bail money to appear on 'Fix My Life' series

August 24, 2016, 6:07 pm ET

A North Carolina woman who spent part of her $188 million lottery jackpot bailing her boyfriend out of jail is due to appear on a Fix My Life reality series.

Marie Holmes, who won a $188 Powerball jackpot in 2015, made headlines when she spent more than $20 million of her newfound fortune bailing her boyfriend, Lamar "Hot Sauce" McDow, out of jail on multiple occasions.

The Oprah Winfrey Network announced Holmes is slated to appear on Iyanla: Fix My Life in September. The network said Holmes recorded her interview with self-help guru Iyanla Vanzant just 48 hours before McDow was slated to report for a 10 year prison sentence after pleading guilty to drug charges.


Alabama lottery vote manuevering fractures Republican caucus

August 24, 2016, 10:18 am ET

Two senators have resigned from the Senate Republican Caucus in the wake of last week's vote to approve a statewide lottery, citing policy differences and claiming senate leaders violated their own rules in an effort to muscle the bill through.

The bill, which was approved by a margin of 21-12, would send $100 million of lottery revenue each year to Medicaid, which is facing a $70 million shortfall this year, with the rest going to the General Fund.

The bill endured a filibuster on the senate floor, which requires a three-fifths vote (21 of 35 senators) to "cloture," or end.
