Indiana Dem chairman calls on lottery director to quit

October 6, 2011

The head of the Indiana Democratic Party wants the director of the Hoosier Lottery to resign after an admission that it overspent on its new headquarters.

Democrat Chairman Dan Parker criticized Lottery Director Kathryn Densborn on Thursday for spending more than $25,000 on a workout room while the economy "is in shambles."

Lottery officials aren't commenting on his remarks.

Parker's statement came a day after a news conference in which lottery officials acknowledged they did not comply with Department of Administration requirements in moving to a 35,000-square-foot office.

Gov. Mitch Daniels' spokeswoman, Jane Jankowski, told The Associated Press that the Department of Administration is working with the lottery to make sure it's in compliance with standards. She also says the lottery's move will save money overall.
