The real hats off should go to Jim695. Without him identifying the problem nothing would have ever happened. His resolute attitude and determination is the foundation for this movement.

      Go Maddog! We shall overcome!

      There is a place I know;

      Where the State Lottery cant ruin the show;

      Its a place we all know and boast;

      That place is Lottery Post!;

      Whenever theres something odd;

      We just call Todd;

      If the numbers arent random;

      Todd will go on a tandem;

      He is sure to make it right;

      Cause he knows how to fight!

            Ironically today I had one of those survey forms from my state rep.

            I was sure to state my feeling of this topic to him and let him know that I support Alderman , and hope he votes in favor of the change.

            One thing that I have noticed with computerized draws, is that Hoosiers pay outs have been so much less then other states of comparable size, that uses the ball drawings.

            which has made me wonder?

            good luck to all

              This bill is the direct result of the efforts put forth by LosingJeff, Todd, Jimmie Goings, Kevin Leininger and many others who worked tirelessly to bring it about.

              However, there are other related issues which have yet to be addressed, issues such as our non-existant liability limits. Returning to mechanical draw machines is certainly a step in the right direction, but this particular agency is so fraught with corruption that it will need a complete overhaul to close all the loopholes in the laws which govern its operation. Should even one of these loopholes remain open, it's a good bet that some dishonest employee or officer will find a way to exploit it.

              Additionally, the perpetrators of these frauds must be brought to justice. While I applaud Mr. Alderman's willingness to champion a cause which is unpopular in political circles, I do not agree with his contention that, "We can take care of this quietly; no one needs to lose his job or go to jail."

              To that end, the fight continues...     




              Kudo's Jim695. It's unbelieveable Mr. Alderman said that.
