Family with furloughed worker gets lucky in Virginia lottery

A Virginia family affected by the federal government shutdown isn't feeling the pinch like others who aren't getting paychecks because they got lucky

The drawing happened last month, before the government shutdown. Still, a lottery release has Walls saying the cash prize was particularly timely because her husband is a federal worker currently furloughed in the shutdown. His name wasn't released. Walls herself spent over a decade in the U.S. Air Force.
