U.S. Congressman wins lottery again

Washington, D.C. LotteryWashington, D.C. Lottery: U.S. Congressman wins lottery again

Sensenbrenner is a foe of illegal aliens

U.S. Rep. James Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, known for his strong opposition to illegal immigration, won the lottery for the third time last week, the Associated Press reported Friday.

The Republican — already a millionaire — hit it big in 1997 with a $250,000 jackpot in the District of Columbia lottery. Then, last spring, he won $1,000 prize in the Wisconsin lottery, and he won another $1,000 in that lottery last week, the AP said.

Sensenbrenner was born into a family that helped build Kimberly-Clark Corp., maker of Kleenex tissue and Scott paper towels, and he recently reported a net worth of about $11.6 million, the AP said.

Sensenbrenner is a leader in the fight against illegal aliens who break immigration laws.  He authored a bill last year to crack down on illegal immigration. The measure, which passed in the House, triggered a protest by hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants and their supporters, marching in the streets, and unwittingly demonstrating the depth of the problem.

Congratulations to the Lucky Congressman!

Anyone know what his position was on the Online Gambling Bill?

    Congratulations Congressman Sensenbrenner.

    At least he's not hiding his gambling habits.

            Rich and poor they both want (More) money, not that they are going to get it, but they think that they might, a very few will of course.

                  Be good if someone in Wisconsin would send this guy an email requesting he initiate a federal law banning computerized lotteries.

                    He probably plays just for fun.

                      Since I got 3 responses to this comment (thank you) I want to mention that I was being facetious.  (hope my use of the word is correct)

                      People are always saying that only the poor and desperate play the lottery, so this is just one example, among many, of why that statement isn't true.  They also say "it only takes one" which is true, but I sometimes feel that people who can blow $50 in one night have a greater shot at winning a jackpot, just using a little common sense.   Tonight I bought my regular 4 Lotto tickets and the man in back of me asked for 10 Lotto and 10 Fantasy 5.  We both have a chance, but his odds are a little better, especially in Fantasy 5, since I didn't buy any!

                            With his family fortune, I don't think he will have financial problems later in life ... LOL
