There can be no question that, if this trend is allowed to continue (in other words, if WE allow it to continue), Florida and other states will embrace electronic drawing methods.
Once officials in other states begin to see how much money can simply vanish before the public's eyes, with no consequences or investigations, of course they'll make the switch. Not to do so would make them the laughingstock of their peers. Ethics violations, questionable spending and outright fraud or other criminal activity are not only condoned by the legislature, but they're willing to pass laws that protect the wrongdoers who practice them.
Very few attorneys are willing to jeopardize their practices to challenge the state. In Indiana, we shopped our evidence file around to various attorneys for over a year. Three different firms have told us that what we've collected is "probably sufficient to convict on at least three federal RICO predicates (Wire Fraud, Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud and Misappropriation/ Conversion of Public Funds)." None are willing to file our case in court, however, because, "the state house can make it very difficult for us to make a living." Read into that what you will, but the bottom line is that they're not willing to jeopardize their own careers and livelihoods by making powerful public officials answer for their crimes.
Those of you who reside in states that still use traditional drawing methods should enjoy your reverie while you can. For many of you, these issues are only real in the minds of those who continue protesting the use of RNG's in state lotteries. The reality of the situation won't settle in until your state lottery switches to electronic drawings, informing the public after the fact. By then, it will be too late, and you'll be back here trying to recruit help from the forum.
