I love the story of the woman who claims she had the winning lottery ticket but lost it in a convenience store parking lot. She was on Keith Olberman's show last night on MSNBC with her lawyer. She didn't make any sense and neither did her lawyer, who rambled on about how the state should have a system where you put your drivers license in some mechanism when you buy a lottery ticket to confirm it was you who bought it.
Uuuhhhh, and they also should have a time machine so you can go and buy the winning ticket after you know what numbers will be selected.
Anyway, near the end of the interview, Olberman sprung this on the lady: thesmokinggun.com was reporting that Elecia Battle wasn't her real name and she had been convicted of various types of fraud through the years.
The look on her face was classic. When asked for a response, her lawyer said, "This is the first I'm hearing of it." Must have been a good time to find that out.
