Am I the ONLY one who has the guts to bring forward that these NYS Workers purchased the Quick Pick at 2:40 p.m. last Friday???

HELLOOOOOO... These NYS workers who are bragging that they have been doing this for years.. ON MY DIME AND YOURS, Getting PAID to WORK not Purchase LOTTERY tickets ON The TAXPAYERS DIME!!!

Hellllooooo anyone out there????

NYS should FIRE these workers for wasting Taxpayers money during working hours and NYS should confiscate the $319 Million and return that money to the Taxpayers through tax cuts.

Here's why.

They admitted that they PURCHASED the winning ticket, as they were being compensated for work of which NYS Taxpayers pay them.

We DO NOT pay them to screw off and leave their post to walk around collecting lottery funds from co workers to leave the building to purchase lottery tickets ON TAXPAYERS TIME.

There is a great example of why we need to abolish 50,000 NYS workers jobs because it proved that obviously they're not busy enough to work and they rather play... ON TAXPAYERS DIME.

Call me what you want but NYS should fire them and take the winnings from them.

If they were smart they should have purchased the tickets on their own time AFTER or BEFORE reporting for duty NOT during.
