Why People Hate Government

I suppose there’s nothing illegal about this.  And maybe it’s even natural that someone who’s spent a umber of years building experience and contacts would make a career move that makes sense.

In fact, it happens in Corporate America all the time.

But still, this rubs me wrong:

Raleigh, N.C. — Tom Shaheen, who has headed the North Carolina Education Lottery since its inception four years ago, has resigned his post to take a job with a company involved in the sale of lottery tickets through ATMs.

Lottery officials said in a statement Monday that Shaheen will be vice president of business development for Linq3, which has developed solutions for the sale of lottery tickets through automated teller machines and other point-of-sale terminals for distribution both in the U.S. and abroad. His last day at the lottery will be Sept. 17.

Good work if ya can get it!
