Letter alleges lewd, drunken behavior by lottery officials

By  | 

Gov. Jerry Brown is asking the attorney general to look into a whistleblower complaint about alleged inappropriate and drunken behavior by staff of the California State Lottery.
The Sacramento Bee reports an anonymous employee last week sent Brown's office and the newspaper a package of photos showing the behavior.
One photo shows a man, allegedly a top lottery official, with his head up a woman's shirt at a bar. It's unclear who the woman is.
The Bee reports lottery spokesman Russ Lopez declined to comment.
The anonymous complainant says "unprofessional shenanigans" have become a "regular practice" for lottery management.
Brown spokeswoman Ali Bay says the contents of the letter are "troubling."
