The Erie Daily Times reported this in Saturday's edition of the paper. It was reported that the PA lottery made 3.5 BILLION for 2012. The EDT reports that the deal with the British Firm is for 20 years and the firm promises a profit of 34 Billion over the course of the next 20 years.
??????????
Let's do the math shall we? Assuming that we make the same in the lottery as we did in 2012, over a 20 year span, that is 70 Billion. A Brit firm takes it over and promises HALF of that? Am I the only one that sees this as a major screw put to the Seniors in PA?
Corbett and his minions HAD to have gotten a serious kick back from this deal. Re-electing him would be a DISASTER!
have some fun

Tom Corbett is a total a__hole, liar,thief and a sellout. He won't support legalizing pot because as AG all he accomplished was bust weed dealers. I know I feel safer.

BTW...the State's "consulting firm", Greenhill & Co, is pocketing a cool $30 million of the cash to bring this deal together, easy money considering Camelot (the buyer) was the only bidder and Corbett is trying to ink the deal before the Senate Finance Committee can vet the deal. This stinks to high heaven. PA's senior citizens, whose population is rising, are the losers and what do we get? New games like Keno, can't we do that now without selling? If Corbett wants to reinvent government he should start by reducing the size of the legislature and scaling back the pay and eliminating the pensions.

What do you expect? Corbett is on the take from anyone who'll pay him off. PA voters elected this crook, now you can live with his crap.

He must have been doing something right, he won his 2nd term with 60% of the vote. Corbett has a meer 36% approval rating. It's too bad PA dosen't have a recall election in the State constitution.

I think this move puts Corbett in the running. Can this even be stopped?
