Interim Executive Director Named For Hoosier Lottery

Last updated on Tuesday, October 18, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS) - A big change at the Hoosier Lottery after officials there have come under fire for excessive spending and purchasing lavish office products and other equipment.

The lottery's executive director Kathyrn Densborn resigned Friday after allegations of mishandling money within lottery offices.

Megan Ornellas has been appointed by Governor Mitch Daniels as interim executive director.

The lottery came under fire earlier this month after the lottery's move to a 35,000 square foot office that included a $25,000 workout gym.
