Illinois (ECWd) -
Governor Pritzker's "All In For The Win" $10 million lottery drawing for people who have received their COVID shots DO NOT apply to Veterans, Military, or anyone who may have received their shots from a federal facility.
Also excluded are family members of those veterans and active duty personnel who may have received their shots at a federal facility.
Federal facilities include Veterans hospitals, and military installations (like Scott Air Force Base) and others.
Shameful is the word for the lottery itself, however, there are no words for the deliberate exclusion of those who are on active duty, are veterans, or may have otherwise received their shots at a federal facility.
Included are "residents" with no requirement to be a U.S. citizen - so he screws over Veterans, but permits people who may be in the country illegally.
Nice job Gov.
We have also asked the Governor's office for any legal authority for such a program.
