  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.  

  Welcome to my little world ...

I also agree Jim, because none of these law firms are willing to stand up for their own convictions because they don't have the BALLS, they only have RNG'S (Running Nerd Giblets)......!

I just wonder if these so called Lawyers Squatt or stand up when they relieve themselves... How pathetic are they????

    I was told by a store owner that florida lottery is in the biddding stages to be sold off from the state.

    I also understand you cannot purchase a 1 year lottery ticket at this time...so that also makes me think that this is true.

       I hope they do not , but word is out they're out to "privatize" to save money . Give me a break. Too many ways to cheat players with computers, by leaving out certain numbers,for example. But as history has shown us, whenever big money is involved, there will be crooks. I tuned in tonight on TV to see if they actually show a drawing, they didnt,only flashed the numbers ( Official drawing Channel), which tells me they may already be doing it and not telling anyone. As far as organizing all the lotto players in the country, you surely must jest...We here may make up 1/100,000th of 1%. theres no way that's ever gonna happen .

        woah!

        if they used to show the drawings on tv but have now have started to just flash the numbers then i do think there might be a chance the drawings may already in fact be computerized.

        very interesting.
