When The Fun Stops - Episode 642

Gambling addiction is no laughing matter.
Ok, it is... just this once.
Not just the indigent hopeless idiots trolling for any life line from the depths of despair are gambling addicts, they're preachers, billionaires, captains of industry and now... Ex-Mayors of San Diego married to the Jack In The Box fortune.
Mayor Maureen O'Connor (Democrat) copped to having a mega gambling problem, losing $13 million bucks between 2000 and 2009 at California, Vegas and A.C. casinos. Her game of choice? Video poker.
Mayor O'Connor's lawyers wager she made about $1 billion in bets during those years. Based on location, I'll venture a guess that Mayor O'Connor was (and is) a card carrying member of the Total Rewards loyalty program from Caesars Entertainment.
ONE BILLION DOLLARS IN WAGERS. ON VIDEO POKER. Can you imagine the metric kiloton assload of Total Rewards points and tier credits that crazy jacks (in the box) or better loving lady racked up? She probably got comped at the FlamingO!
Unfortunately, the fun stopped and Ms. O'Connor allegedly dipped into her late husbands charitable foundation as her addiction spiraled out of control.
So, yeah... even the high and mighty very well to do politicians suffer from the hypnotism at the sight of Gary Loveman's expertly tousled pelt.
