HARRISBURG, Pa., Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At 11:30, Thursday, Dec. 20, a growing coalition of concerned citizens will present four large – very large -- instant lottery tickets to the handful of special interests who will "win" if the Corbett administration closes the deal to privatize management of the PA Lottery with United Kingdom-based Camelot.


Gene Stilp and Eric Epstein of Rock the Capital ( will join with other good government activists and seniors.

"The fact is that Pennsylvanians lose. Seniors lose. Transparency in government loses," said Gene Stilp. "This is a bad deal and Gov. Corbett should stop this fire sale, agree to hold public hearings on this proposal and go to the legislature for approval."

The public and media are invited to join Stilp for the unveiling of the tickets at 11:30 a.m., THURSDAY, DEC. 20, in the Small Rotunda. For more information, go to
