Let's just hope she has contacted financial experts to assist her, that she has a new telephone number, has temporarily found a new place to live; as she will be inundated with people interested in helping her spend her fantastic winnings.

I remember reading about one lottery winner who was robbed of $500,000 at a strip bar! Even worse it happened twice at the same sleazy bar! A large percentage of lottery winners are broke in five years.

What was the guy doing with $500,000 at a local strip club? For that wad of cash, he could have approached Lindsay Lohan.

The least he could have done was go to a different strip bar to give another group of girls a chance at him-his money.

Hopefully this is someone in need who's life is really gonna change. Unlike last week where StPete Chiropractor and former Florida Legislator Frank Farkas, with a net worth of $350 million, won $50,000 a week for life with a scratch off and took the $850,000 lump sum. He says he's going to support charities ... how about giving it to the state for some of the b.s. legislation you sponsered that dips into all our pockets. Or give it to your likely underpaid clinic employees.
