Big changes are in store for Charitable Bingo in Texas.
New reports uncovered by the CBS 11 I-Team show that the Texas Lottery Commission has known for years that their bingo halls play host to potentially illegal gambling.
On Monday, the CBS 11 I-Team confirmed the Director of Charity Bingo, Sandra Joseph, resigned from her post. Her resignation was submitted two days after the I-Team’s initial investigation into charity bingo in Texas.
Some charity organizations across Texas have been pushed to the brink of bankruptcy after getting involved with bingo. The Lottery Commission runs charity bingo. But some non-profit groups believe the state isn’t doing enough to protect the groups.
For the past week, cars, pick-ups and SUV’s have lined up at Goodwill Industries donation sites. Some are loaded with clothes. Others carry large appliances and electronics.
