A Sicilian mayor has come up with a novel plan to resolve his town's cash-flow problems - by betting local officials' salaries on the lottery.

Discuss.

That's ace. I think he's just trying to demonstrate how poor govt funding is though, not actually win.

"The chances of winning Tuesday's draw were higher than those of receiving funds pledged by the state, he said."

It'd be funny if they lost. It's funny either way.

And the mayor seems to hope that a little more than luck will boost the town's chances of getting all six numbers correct in the unprecedented draw.

''We chose numbers which were connected with the town's patron saint, the Virgin Mary of the Assumption," Mr Ridolfo was quoted as saying by Ansa news agency.

"It is our hope that, with her blessing, we will hit the jackpot."


Clever man!

Sicilian mayor? Money?

There's clearly something dodgy going on.

Sounds like a plot from a sitcom.

Well I guess they had to make the transition from Mafia movies sooner or later.

I wonder how much of that lottery's results are predetermined.
