I think they should just trust her. Everything up to this point indicates she’s a moral, upstanding, trust-worth person.

I don’t understand this.. Doesn’t the Lottery know how many winning tickets there are and where they were sold? Are there outstanding claimants so the Lottery thinks she is one of them? Huh?

I think she might be expecting Obama to step in and issue an executive order declaring her the winner since she accidentally lost her tickets.

Isn’t she more the ‘purported’ winner, rather than the ‘alleged’ winner?

She can’t claim the ticket because there would be an investigation.

There is actually a theory that she has the ticket, bug she is going to wait till the deadline to send someone else to claim the winnings and even that person will give her the money. In this way, she would avoid having to contend with the other McDonalds employees who want a share of the winnings.

Frankly, I don't think she's smart enough to pull off such a scheme and I doubt she ever had the winning ticket. She's not the first to try to get the money without the winning ticket.

There was a winner reported in Baltimore County, and it probably is her. She bought it with money from coworkers at MacDonald’s. Her original story was that the ticket that won wasn’t one of the ones she bought with her coworkers, but one she purchased with her own money. I think she understands that if she cashes it, she’ll have to split it. So now she’s waiting for the hub bub to die down. She’ll probably have a confederate cash it and hope to split it something better than 20-80.

If true, she is a supreme fool.

I’m sure she spends more than $20M a year on her nails. No way she’d even get out of bed for a measly $20M.

The story on her hat is that supposedly it is for a website that was just recently started
http://www.sweetswineporkrinds.com/

Anti Romney.

Notice the site is selling the hat.

Dumb as dirt. And the day after “the trusted friend” on the last day redeems the winning lottery ticket, she will mysteriously be able to buy a new house, a new car, new clothes, get hair extensions, acrylics, etc., etc., etc. and get sued by her workmates...presuming she lives that long, as they are steamed.

If I was one of dat Ho’s partners on LOTTO, she would already be hurting and would genuinely be needing some gool teef.

Do you reckon she thinks she can stall this by pretending she no longer has the ticket and eventually those other idiots will not notice? Well, we get stranger shite from nobama, I guess. It be da culture, you know.

This ‘story’ stunk from the git-go.
I thought it strange when I heard Mon AM on a radio news that a “Maryland state official claims a ticket sold in Baltimore County”.
I was wondering why such a ‘statement’ would be qualified like that.
Then, a couple of days ago Md supposedly named a 7/11 (or convenience store) sold the ticket 4 hours prior the drawing, a single sale.
If that is true, it backs up her saying she bought it by itself.
I don’t think I could get to ‘close to her’ for a third of 560 million, but maybe would ‘PIG OUT’ if she had it all.

That hat may be descriptive....

I imagine the line for the ‘swine lady’ would be long if she were to turn up with that ticket..

Mirlande will be the new Trayvon.

May as well. Just as phony a story as the one the media (un)fairly reported.

Weez got to get paid! Justice for Mirlande! Whitey took the ticket! Let’s just loot the mall! We deserve it! Crackers are racist putting such high prices on these things we can’t afford them!

Weez a gonna get paid! Time to pay up suckas!

What I want to know is where are the other two winners?! If it was my ticket I would have that little piece of paper signed and turned in to the proper dept the very next day. I don’t think she ever had it. She hid it in the McDonalds where she worked. Please. She hasn’t checked all the pockets of her uniform. Oh, please. The fear now is that someone in that state actually has the winning ticket but has thrown it away thinking she was the winner so their ticket was moot. Personally, I would check the numbers no matter what, but that’s just me.

In the end, she’ll be before a jury and they will rule that she must split the earnings with her coworkers or there will be no pay out.. She’ll eventually cough up the ticket of course.
