The Greed of Envy & too many crooks make this necessary!

Surely the most important news of any day ...

    Maybe it's better to look at this the other way around. If there were no checks and balances and outside auditors overseeing things....how much credibility then would a winners picture and identification hold? What is a person gonna do track these people down and call them? heck you can bet they changed their numbers, probably moved and certainly not accessable to the public understandably. Even if you could track them down somehow, they wouldn't talk to you because there probably are enough crazy people attempting to do just that.....soo really that in no way is an effective means for a lottery player to verify anything nor would players care to go to such lengths.

    I believe people play first and foremost because of strict checks and balances in place and outside auditors...that is where people's trust is... not identifying winners and plastering their face on the lottery website. Computer programs can create false photos and bookkeeping can be tinkered with to paint a different picture as well. If the lottery thinks they are in any way validated and trusted by lottery players by identifying and posting winners pictures they are seriously wrong. It means nothing nor does it add anything to their credibility. I am sure come tax return time big brother will be hunting down winners to pay their dues, so the need to reveal winners to validate is absolute hogwash in my opinion. The lottery promotes it purely for advertisement purpose regardless of the fact that many find it wrong
