Didn't she say prison won't help her? But , Bubbalicious her cellmate surely can.

    Prison will help! She just needs a new perspective such as the fact that she'll be refraining from her addiction to steal . She'll learn to share and she'll learn a new way of life. Change is good and she is about to learn the hard way just how much changing she'll need to do for her crime. 

    I am 100% for rehabilitating those who despareltey need a second chance in life to right their wrongs, but she truly doesnt carry that demeanor. She is one person to whom I can say prison is just where she belongs. I sorta wish she had done time with dear old martha stewart. They would have been a hoot as cell mates!

      Now that it's been proven where the money went, the Doctors should ask the state for their money back.  I'm sure the state doesn't want to be the receiver of stolen money.  BobP

      Interesting comment, BobP.  If a person or business receives stolen money without any knowledge of the theft are they obligated in any way to pay it back to the rightful owner?

        The only thing Ive seen business's obligated to do is- raise prices,refuse paying fines,and make sure that they line their pockets with profits . They will gladly withdraw your taxes imposed each pay and roll it into an interest bearing account for4 months and then pay the piper (Uncle sam).

        So in a quirky way- the very business you work for, steals your tax money to put into an account to bear interest and we call that---free enterprise! and no-they dont give it back...and oddly enough...because its legal ....we cant call it stealing ( yet I consider it such...).

        But then again, I consider paying for  meals to an inmate who has no regard for the laws a waste of my tax money...but what do i know....

          I agree.. the Doctor should get his money back from the state..

          Remember how one jackpot was questioned because the winner had bought the ticket with a stolen credit card..

          Well what is the differences here?

            No doubt that she demonstrated bad behavior and should be punished. But her activity also showed just how bad the odds are stacked against the average player. To gamble away literally millions with nothing to show for it should give people a good perspective that the lottery should be played for fun only and not seen as a viable retirement plan.

              The reason that she didn't have much winnings vs. losses is because she played too many numbers per drawing. Only one number is going to win. Anytime I won anything whether the Pick-5 or the Daily numbers games I usually had 3 or less numbers (my "primaries") and I rarely play the scratch-offs because there is no known way to "systemize" them. It's more fun and less of an "addiction" if you can focus on a few numbers that look ready and less time-consuming.

               I'm curious to know the details of what exactly she played i.e. every number times 10??? How did she have time if it was scratch-offs to scratch all of them? I've found winning tickets discarded by people who bought 20 of them and were in such a hurry they missed a $10 win or forgot to scratch the "instant bonus" box. I wonder how many of her discards were worth something! And how did she have time to stand on line that long + the poor people behind her?

              Aww quit picking on our President (or the shrubbery?).. this ain't move-on-dot-org or something...
