Game Show Winnings Cause Tug-of-War

Source Link - Game Show Winnings Cause Tug-of-War

Members of the deaf community in Georgia took to the streets yesterday to fight for a million dollars they say belongs to three public schools that serve the blind and the deaf.

Protesters crowded the front door of the bankruptcy trustee who is claiming Cox's winnings for creditors.

The million was won by Georgia’s Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox on a television game show.

But then her husband filed for bankruptcy and the money is now tied up in court. The state of Georgia says it belongs to the schools, but creditors want their share.
