How secret cash payments helped pave the way for a release of prisoners and new opening to Iran.
Controversey hits after ongoing reports of state officials taking trips at taxpayer expense. They say the trips are "educational." So ABC 6 News sent two undercover producers to document exactly what state lottery officials did on a tip to Las Vegas, supposedly to study lotteries. It was a three day conference, but they billed the state for a six day trip. Out fo the entire trip, one official spent just 2 hours in the lottery classes. Another spent 20 minutes. The fallout of the story led to tow proposed laws for reform, and one lottery official was stripped of his raise. (Nov. 22, 23, 24, 27 & 28, 1995)
