Congratulations to Kinky Friedman. The musician and comedian says he won $45,000 in a New Orleans casino. He says he may give the money to his independent campaign for governor of Texas. If he wins, Freidman might have a unique perspective on the law that snared a Texas man. Jose Luis Betancourt won more than $5 million in the lottery. A federal court says he has to give it back, because he bought the ticket with drug money.
