Disgraced computer programmer Eddie Tipton admitted in June to masterminding a multistate lottery-rigging scheme that let him pick winning numbers and rake in $2 million. Tipton, 54, who was arrested in 2015, is scheduled for sentencing Tuesday. “The depth of his deceit is dumbfounding,” Iowa Assistant Attorney General Rob Sand said in court filings seeking the 25-year term. “Such crimes cannot be answered without a prison sentence.” Tipton admitted to fixing
Donald Trump lashed out at the “dishonest” media as he returned from a 17-day vacation at his golf club in New Jersey, during which his administration lurched from one crisis to another. The beleaguered president, who removed his chief strategist Steve Bannon last week, has seen his approval ratings fall even further in the wake of his response to the Charlottesville white supremacist rally.
