Apparently, there is something screwy with America’s many state lotteries. This Sunday at 7 p.m. on “Dateline NBC,” correspondent Chris Hansen and his team investigate lottery scams. Hansen, one of the best-known reporters at NBC News and “Dateline NBC” skyrocketed to prominence as the host of “To Catch a Predator.” If you’re preying on underage boys or girls, you don’t want to see Chris Hansen taking the steps to your front door two at a time. With this lottery investigation, why do I have the feeling Hansen and Co. found their way back to his old Tampa stomping grounds—that’s right, right here in the new media capital of the world—to find a story of evil-doing and weirdness? Just a hunch.
