Lucky lawmaker pockets $853,492 from Powerball (Arlo Wagner, October 21, 2005, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Everyone wants to win the lottery -- even a U.S. senator.

Sen. Judd Gregg didn't win the Powerball jackpot yesterday -- the $340 million winning ticket was sold in Oregon -- but the New Hampshire Republican was the holder of one of two winning D.C.-area tickets, each worth an $853,492 share of the prize.

If a New England Senator had to be the winner, I can't think of a better one.

Let's hope this doesn't cause Gregg to retire from the Senate.

Now that's he's rich, he'll probably join the millionaire's club across the aisle.
