Anonymity is not going to hurt sales nor will it stop fraud. By the way, as few large jackpots that are won in individual states as there are, they can't tell me that an investigative/audit branch of that particular state, can't take a look at the records of the few winners each year for verification of a ticket by someone who is authorized to claim their winning.
Really ?? REALLLLY ???
Sorry Lottery Reps, that doesn't fly with this participant. Allow the option
From this rep's lips to God's ear. Hope it passes and that other states follow suit. The transparency and integrity argument is hogwash. Let them show how anonymity has hurt any one of those six states, if they cannot, then move the bill forward.
Seems to me that all the harassment, deaths and frivolous lawsuits come from winners whose states refuse anonymity. And with cybercrime on the uptick, I predict we'll be seeing accounts of these publicized winners getting hacked. Just one more issue to deal with just because the lotteries are media whores.
While at it, have an investigation into how much money and resources are going into lobbying against these bills every time they come up. I want to know how much they're diverting from their purpose of education funding to launch these attacks.
