Michigan $1 Million Lotto Winner Arrested for Failing to Report Winnings, Employment


Andi Brancato, the Michigan Lottery's public relations director, said the state lottery officials "have no objection" to the proposed law, "but we need the legislative authority to provide that information to the Department of Human Services."

Asked for a comment regarding lottery winners receiving public assistance last month, Brancato said, "whether somebody is or isn't is not the role of the lottery."

"We pay the winner their prize and we don't have any authority to do anything beyond that," she said. "If the legislation is enacted we will certainly comply with the legislation which will presumably prevent situations like this from occurring in the future."
