 ATLANTA — Top Georgia Lottery executives received large payouts and raises despite a law mean to curb bonuses.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports more than $260,000 worth of “incentive pay” went to top staffers in 2011. Then-Lottery President Margaret DeFrancisco received the largest amount, almost $83,000.

Lawmakers that year passed legislation to curtail bonuses for Lottery executives. At the time, both ticket sales and payments to state education programs were declining.

Why do we learn what the 2011 bonuses were in 2013? We need to know what the 2012 bonuses were in order to put any meaning to this story.

Poor kids

This is why they raised the GPA so thousands of kids won't be able to go to college. I'm not buying from them anymore.
