Millionaire congressman wins $1,000 lottery prize

Take care of the pence and the pounds will take care of themselves! 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 (EUR182,895) jackpot in the District of Columbia lottery. Then, last spring, he won $1,000 (EUR732) prize in the Wisconsin lottery, and he won another $1,000 (EUR732) 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 (EUR8.49 million). He said he spends about $10 (EUR7.32) 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 (EUR732) prizes each week. Lottery officials put the odds of winning just one time at 1 in 5,000.

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
