Budget Issues Land State on Comedy News Show

Illinois’ political woes have long been a national laughing stock, and now the state is set to be featured on a comedy show. The Ottawa Times reports that a crew from the award winning “Daily Show” was in Ogelsby recently to interview Illinois lottery winner Danny Chasteen; who has still not been paid the 250-thousand dollars he won in July. Chasteen says that the state has told him that they simply don’t have the money to pay his winnings. Chasteen and another unpaid winner are suing the state.
