WFXT reports on how "Massachusetts state lottery workers travel out of state at taxpayer expense." Through a hidden camera investigation the story details the leisure activities of the lottery director and eights lottery workers during a 5-day conference which has cost the taxpayers $13,000. The reporter shows how during the conference the lottery participants have missed important lessons about preventing compulsive gambling, considered an important issue in Massachusetts.
