    Default Millionaire U.S. Rep. wins lottery a THIRD time

    MILWAUKEE - U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, already a millionaire and heir to the Kimberly-Clark fortune, is on a lucky streak. The Republican hit it big in 1997 with a $250,000 jackpot in the District of Columbia lottery. Then, last spring, he won $1,000 prize in the Wisconsin lottery, and he won another $1,000 in that lottery last week.



    "I got lucky," Sensenbrenner said.

    Sensenbrenner, 64, was born into a family that helped build Kimberly-Clark Corp., maker of Kleenex tissue and Scott paper towels, and he recently reported a net worth of about $11.6 million. He said he spends about $10 a week on lottery tickets.

    The latest winnings came in a Super 2nd Chance drawing, in which people who mail in at least $5 in losing tickets vie for 10 $1,000 prizes each week. Lottery officials put the odds of winning just one time at 1 in 5,000.

    Well, I was expecting to read that he won Megabucks, so a coupla $1000 payoffs doesn't seem like much (though it's still more than I've ever won). Hopefully he found a good cause to give the $250,000 to, though...

    Looks to me like he's storing the winnings in his neck.

    Well, I don't know why they would need to. But primarily, I was referring to the fact that Sensenbrenner is a piece of shit.

    Have you been reading the papers lately? I think a lot of those guys have bigger porn collections than you do. And probably a different type of porn in many cases.

    So because the guy plays the lotto and wins he is a greedy piece of shit? Is everyone that plays the lotto a greedy piece of shit? What about people that are rich and continue to make money in the stock market?

    And thats about what its worth.

    You've got to chuckle at the sensationalism of the story. The guy wins two $1,000 prizes and they call it winning the lottery, just because it makes a better headline.

    LMAO @ "Heir to the Kleenex throne."

    No, he's a piece of shit because he wants a National ID card. That's one step away from a chip in the arm, and I'm sure you know what that means.

    He's a piece of shit because he was one of the authors of the UnPatriotic Act which shredded the Constitution at a time when most of the population was too fucking scared to notice.

    He's a piece of shit because he walked out of a valid, nationally televised congressional hearing on the UnPatriotic Act and cut the lights and the microphones, because the facts being discussed didn't agree with his neocon agenda. (Sorry, looked for the You Tube clip, couldn't find it. But I watched it live on C-Span when it happened. And you can read about the incident here.)

    You do make a valid point about the stock market being a form of legalized gambling, but there is a point where it's just excessive greed. How much money does one really need. This one dude who a lot of Republicans like to call their "favorite political philosopher" used to say something about camels and eyes of needles in regards to the price paid for excessive wealth.

    But maybe that deserves it's own discussion?
