    Tennessee Lottery Found to have Breached State Law.

    This is from Lotteryinsider.com I can't go more into it though. :( I hope it's nothing serious.

            Nothing yet.  I don't think Lottery Tennessee will be shut down.  The funds are too great.  However, Rebecca Paul, God bless her, may be in some trouble.  Here as of late she's had a very bad time with TN.  I feel bad for her.  I wouldn't be surprised at all if she left TN and went to Oklahoma.  She is already sending them advice on a startup and she did this with the TN board before she left GA out of the blue.  I really like Rebecca Paul.  She likes to give prizes away lol.

                No. They aren't doing anything bad with the funds.  We almost have $300 Million in the Education fund.  The TN lawmakers are giving her a hard time.  Salary Cuts and all the bills submitted wanting to change the lottery.  (One bill would eliminate Sunday ticket sales which I've not heard about in a long time).  Lawmakers are saying she isn't doing a good job when I think she's doing a great job.  Cohan who worked for years getting the lottery gives her a really tough time too.

                    How much goes to Education and how much Rebecca Paul makes crap like that.  If it isn't broke DON'T FIX IT!

                      thats why i can't stand certain politicians because they take something perfectly good and turn it to trash all in the name of a few dollars......

                        they will end up running ms. paul out of town and the lottery will suffer because of it.

                          Yeah.  I like Rebecca Paul.  She is a great director and if she leaves tn lottery will go to crap.

                              She was on one of the local radio stations in Nashville this morning and the dj asked her if she had ever won the lottery and she said yes when she came to Nashville she met a man and fell in love, Unless he's ready to move she might stay awhile, smile.
