The Perks of Running A Lottery ...

Introduction to another series of incredible stories
that warrant a full scale independent investigation.

It involves questionable, senseless spending
of taxpayer money (sponsorships, travels
& advertising), lies by omission, inflating
taxable second chance prize amounts,
licensing of non-qualified scratch
games, abuse of state benefits
plus much more.


But Before Reading the Stories ....
Read My Complaint Letter To The
Honorable Governor Greg Abbott

Governor Abbott holds the highest office in the State
and has oversight of everything. He, in my opinion,
is the only person who could and should call
for an independent investigation. In this case,
it is in the BEST interst of the state because we
are talking about a huge waste of taxpayer money.

Interesting Note
(I mailed this letter on Tuesday, Nov 5, 2019 and
as fate would have it, on Wednesday, Nov 6, 2019
a top prize winning ticket was sold by the very
store I reported in this letter to the Governor.
This winning ticket, IF sold via the app, was
not legally purchased and should not be paid.)

- Part One -
The Texas Lottery and Director Gary Grief
causes many delays in obtaining documents
to investigates and write this story. So I posted
this first ... "A Story About A Story."
You will see where one could easily
question if documents provided were
altered. This would be a violation of law.

Texas Lottery Lacks Transparency

- Part Two -
Details pertaining to the TLC's
responses to my open records requests.
Unbelievable. It is quite obvious they don't
want to provide any information to me.

An Open Records Nightmare

- Part Three -
International travel paid for by
the World Lottery Association is
what Mr. Gary Grief wants everyone
to believe. But is this TRUE? Did they
alter these documents too? Aug 21, 2019
- Running A Red Light To Travel

- Part Four -
Lavish travels - a minimum 105 trips at
a cost of a minimum of $160K. But were
these trips really paid for by the state?
See how much was paid in service fees,
inflated memberships and scratch tickets
that were licensed by the very
organization Mr. Grief says paid for
his travels. Was this act equivalent to
stealing prize monies from the players?
Plus, this story offers a fun contest for
the person who can guess Mr. Griefs
miles traveled! Oct 21, 2019 -
