Illegal Immigrant Allowed To Collect Winning $750,000 Lottery Ticket

HOUSTON COUNTY, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) — An illegal immigrant from Guatemala will be able to collect $750,000 he won from a lottery ticket he purchased in 2010.

A Houston County Superior Court jury ruled in 27-year-old Tony Cua-Toc’s favor Thursday that he was the rightful owner of the Jingle Jumbo Bucks lottery ticket, according to the Macon Telegraph.

Cua-Toc, who entered the country illegally in 2000, claimed that the business owner he worked for, Erick Cervantes, claimed the winning lottery ticket for him and ended up keeping the money, according to the paper.

Cervantes said in court that he was the rightful owner of the ticket because he gave Cua-Toc $20 to purchase it for him.

The Macon Telegraph also reports that the jury awarded Cua-Toc $207,000 in attorney’s fees and is also entitled to punitive damages.

StupidWatch keeps track of the stupid complaints by whinning intolerant liberals who are content to be led around by their noses rather than just live and let live…StupidWatch is always very interested in liberal haters who lack a sense of humor and any personal responsibility.

        Curious how many liberals wish death on anyone who disagrees with them, much like Muslim radicals do.

      2. The Bobster says:

        The Usurper is not a natural born citizen. And that BC was an obvious fake.

    5. krp says:

      Actually he could pay for a lawyer to get him a visa for him in his family and he would never have to be deported.

      Immigration is just like any other law, passed by the worthless law degree holders in Congress. It is just a racket to allow other lawyers to charge exorbitant fees for filling out forms that anyone can fill out themselves, only the more they pay the lawyers the more “impressed” the courts would be with their application. Anyone that is willing to pay an attorney can get any kind of visa they want. Government bureaucrats are not going to deport, or deny residency to anyone that has a substantial amount of money, because they wouldn’t be able to tax them.

    6. The Bobster says:

      And for the rest of his extended family.

  2. JUDE says:

    Right F*^K the rules. HE shouldn’t have been here. NOT legal. No common sense in this country and to hell with rule we Americans has to follow. JEZZZZZz

    1. mini meme says:

      There is no such thing as illegal immigrant anymore because the United States of America no longer exists. We now live under global government and America is the EMPIRE’S shining example of open-borders-respect-all-cultures/races/religions-global-governance. In fact, all of the patriotic, American nationalistic, give-us-your-tired-downtrodden, rags-to-riches, melting-pot, land of the free jazz has been nothing more than a carefully planned, 200 year BAIT AND SWITCH SCAM. GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF PLANET EARTH, SUCKERS!!!

        They should considering the dude pays no federal income tax…

      2. Jackpot says:

        What a made up story. Much of the news is made up after the coup and cover up. Unelected officials took over Washington and the media. They think you can’t handle the truth. Fact of the matter is we have no democracy, president, and freedom of press is an illusion.

        Our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren’t in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out. Search PalinsDirtyLittleSecret for the biggest cover up in history

      3. joelbowles says:

        Jackpot if that link is all you have against Mrs. pallin that is just pittiful. It takes page after page of the most rediculious statements and farout notions to paint Mrs Pallin as some kind of communist plant Why oh why have you not spent just a little of your time vetting obama who is holding an elected office instead of a private citizen? your bias is showing and it is not pretty.

      4. Mel Longdale says:

        “Jackpot” thanks for the scoop. It’s obvious the government doesn’t want something like that leaking out. I didn’t realize that Sarah Palin really is a national hero.

      5. Marre says:

        so he comes into this country illegally, can keep all his earnings because he pays no taxes, gets free medical, sucks from our government, wins a lottery, and can keep it, since when do illegals have any rights in this country, constitutional or otherwise? we have hungry, out of work, homeless AMERICANS while we continue to cater to illegals and turn a blind eye…well lets see how fast the IRS jumps on this one!

      6. ladini says:

        Jackpot ,
        You forgot to ask if anyone cares.
        (Not that you’d like hearing the answer.)

      7. jackpot is a crackpot says:

        jackpot spams that same website in just about every story. It’s getting stupid, especially since his assertion is that there was a coup because whitney houston looks like gayle whatsherface (oprah’s friend).

        I think someone went off his meds.

      8. Steve says:

        No, the IRS will not take the money. He’s not a citizen of the U.S. and doesn’t owe any taxes. He’ll get his citizenship now so that he will spend the money here instead of his real country of citizenship (at least that’s what Obama and the other government morons think).

    2. beedogs says:

      They just tried and failed to confiscate it. Can you read???

    3. KAY says:


  4. bobo says:

    You have toi be a legal resident to claim the prize

  5. RHO says:

    No, it is his money, but how did he prove he actually gave the money to the owner of the business? That is my only question. He should be immediately deported, of course. He is still an illegal.

    1. krp says:

      Surveillance camera footage probably. Maybe the cashier knew him personally and testified. When a winning lottery ticket is purchased, the seller of the ticket gets a windfall too. The lottery company knows where every lottery ticket is purchased.

  6. Dsizzle says:

    Maybe we should give the convicted Drug dealers back all their money and assets…After all they’re criminals too.

    1. t ban says:

      Great point!

  7. Brian says:

    The money was “obtained” while breaking the law or in this case, simply being an illegal immigrant and therefore all money should be taken by the government and distributed to the legal citizens who are on welfare.

    1. a witt says:

      The employer who knowingly hired the illegal should be heavily fined but I disagree with giving the winnings to the recipients of welfare. The more you give, the less likely they will ever get off welfare and learn to take care of themselves. That fact is well known, well proven and well used by the democrat party to keep up their voter rolls.

      1. Mary says:

        The catch word “knowingly” is a problem too. If E-Verify was available when he was hired, they should have vetted his iidentity. But now this administration is not doing its own due diligence, 8 million illegals are still working while 14-22 million unemployed legal immigrants and citizens can’t find a job! And most will do them! And for the ones lucky enough to get unemployment which many are still struggling to survive,, that is at a cost of over $100B for last CBO scored amount plus another two rounds, all within 2 years, maybe 3, and 41% of that is borrowed, just like everything else this government spends!

    2. jackpot is a crackpot says:

      so if i’m speeding and call in to a radio station and win $1M i should have to forfeit it because I was breaking the law when I “obtained” it?

  8. SomeDude68 says:

    Now deport her… AFTER collecting the taxes!

  9. Just wondering says:

    Was the jury permitted to hear that he was an illegal immigrant? My guess is “no” since it wasn’t really relevant to whether or not he or his boss was the ticket’s true owner.

    1. Locke says:

      Except that you have to be a LEGAL resident to claim the money or even play.
      Since he failed that test the lawsuit should’ve been dismissed by the ignorant judge.
      Everyone who played the lotto that day should sue the judge, personally.

  10. Bobster says:

    Need not be a resident to win.

  11. Stan in Texas says:

    Only in America.

    Imagine for a moment that an illegal immigrant had gone into virtually any other country (Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, etc) and won the lottery. You think who would ever hear the story about him let alone hear that he had won a court case??

    1. Mary says:

      An illegal sued a racncher that subdued him on his property and the illegal won the lawsuit against him and got his ranch! Another one sued for injury when he was defending himself against the illegal and the illegal won that suit too and got a bundle of money!!

  12. HM Phobe says:

    Deport the illegal. Arrest the boss for hiring illegals.

    1. KoreaKid says:

      You forgot, confiscate the money first!

  13. Tspud1 says:

    He is going to pay taxes now. It will all be gone in a year anyway.

  14. Jsmith says:

    Give him hi s money and put his a$s on a plane.

    1. krp says:

      Give him his money and he can hire an attorney and get legal immigration status.

      Now that he is “rich”, he doesn’t have to worry about immigration. Immigration is to keep poor people out.

  15. texasgoat says:

    Question, does the IRS take a cut up front? I really am curious…

    1. krp says:

      You must be living under a rock. The IRS takes its cut out of EVERY lottery winning.

  16. Chad says:

    Being illegal isn’t the proximate cause of having the ticket stolen from him. If he were visiting and bought the ticket then he would be able to keep the money, right? He bought the ticket and he won. He deserves the money and deserves to be deported. I’m sure lots of people buy lottery tickets while illegally intoxicated or driving on suspended licenses, we don’t try to keep the money from them.

    1. krp says:

      It amazes me how ignorant people are. If he deserves the money, then he can hire a lawyer to get him residency, and he would NOT be deported.

      Anybody can get any kind of visa they want, if they pay a lawyer enough money.. Immigration is just like any other racket. It is just a scheme dreamed up by lawyers in Congress to get their campaign donation contributing lawyer buddies a way of charging people to get them to fill forms – and convincing judges, who they also give campaign contribution to, to bend the rules.

  17. Henry says:

    Endless illegals, yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights.

    They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like “America Deceived II”.

    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you.

    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars.

    Impeach Obama, support Ron Paul.

    Last link of “America Deceived II” before it is completely banned:

  18. jb says:

    Deport the fool. He should not be able to keep the money either.

  19. The Black Piper says:

    I have no problem with awarding him the money. He bought the ticket. Now, deduct all of the state and federal taxes and deport his but out of the Country.

    1. laffin'atcha says:

      you forgot to collect the cost of the benefits he has received over the years also…

  20. W. Chamberlan says:

    Let him pay a fine for breaking our immigration laws and be done with it.

    1. Mary says:

      No way, there are legal applicants waiting their turn outside of this country and we only have so many jobs and resources which already can’t keep up with the needs of legal immigrants and citizens here! We cannot employ, educate or take care of the world, so it’s not right for illegals to have jobs and resources needed by those here legally!!

      1. john says:

        he wouldn’t be taking anyone’s job … he is rich, duh!

  21. LISA PELL says:

    HEY-they should throw in a free scholarship – after all they get free health care , no taxes, no legal fees – why not thats only for the losers who hold a job, pay their own tuition, pay taxes, and pay health care costs huge insurance premiums and live in a small house the size of a closet and live on cheese macaroni every night to get by if they get out of the service alive!!!!

    1. krp says:

      Hey Lisa, Do you live under a rock? A large winning like that is not distributed before the IRS takes out taxes. So you cannot not say that he doesn’t pay taxes, because the lottery winnings were not paid out before taxes were taken out.

  22. TiminPhx says:

    You can’t deport him! Obama and the Dems are counting on his vote.

  23. gingerbread says:

    What did anyone expect from a liberal judge? Don’t tell me that you expect common sense? There is a lesson here somewhere, and what is that lesson? DO NOT PUT LIBERAL JUDGES ON THE BENCH. BECAUSE IF YOU DO, THIS IS THE RULING YOU WILL GET

    If he donated $100K Benny Bucks to Obama’s campaign he would be appointed U.S. Ambassador to Guatemala and given a full staff, a couple of limos, unlimited travel for friends and family and, if desired, discrete and unlimited access to gay prostitutes.

  25. gazinya says:

    Doesn’t someone have to sign the ticket? How could I cash a lottery ticket if it was signed by someone else? And if I was handed a ticket to cash for someone else who couldn’t legally sign it and I signed my name then it is mine by possesion. Something isn’t being told about how this went down and there is only enough info to get people to pick a side and be upset.

  26. S says:

    I thought you needed to be a legal citizen to claim lottery prizes???

  27. Geoge Coztanza says:

    If you were in Vegas and your 10 year old son pulled the handle on the machine you were playing and you came up a big winner, they would show you the video of him doing it and not pay you one red cent.

    A friend of mine bought a lottery ticket he was slightly underage, when it came in a 20,000 winner his mother took the ticket in to collect.
    She and her son were both arrested for fraud because they had a tape of him buying it. No Jail But Big Fine.

    Man living here in the kremlin is getting nuts

  28. TXVET48 says:

    He should be allowed to keep the money but the state and federal taxes for the ten years he was here illegally should be taken out of the winnings after the winnings are taxed. Every cent he didn’t pay his taxes for those years should be taken. Then deport him.

  29. Blanca says:

    First determine whether or not the illegal was receiving public assistance (which, by the way, is ILLEGAL). And if so, deduct all past assistance monies received, from his lottery net. Thendeduct all costs of deportation. If the lottery bylaws state that “you must be a legal resident to play, or win…”, the monies must be returned to the lottery pot…Hey, it’s only fair!

    1. krp says:

      The monies were paid out. The only question was did they belong to him, or to his boss.
      With the money left over after the IRS has taken their share (and they always do before any lottery winnings are released) he has plenty left over to hire a lawyer and get him legal residency. There is no reason – especiallly since he has money – for him to ever be deported now.

  30. Garr Obo says:

    Hey, this is great. The IRS will get 50%, the state about 6% and any county or city where the illegal lived will get their cuts. So, he’ll probably get aroud $200,000 in cash. That’s enough to go back to Guatemala a rich man. I imagine he will be marked for being kidnapped by the local police department and they will end up with most of it. It’s a tough life down there.

  31. mojo says:

    That illegal criminal just stole the money from every legal American citizen that played that lottery game too. This is the left’s/liberal’s/democrat’s idea of justice as it applies to every American. So sit back, do nothing, and watch as America becomes a third world pit hole, where you have no rights and the minorities (as in numbers, not race) and illegals spit on you and your families. Just keep voting democrat.

    1. Steve'o says:

      Really ???????????????????????????????????????????????????

  32. 456745757 says:

    This reminds me of a story I heard about a low-life attorney who had an illegal alien do work for him on his house and then refuse to pay, saying “sue me.”


    1. krp says:

      Then shouldn’t that attorney be sued by the state for hiring someone without papers?

    2. krp says:

      Wait a minute!!! Low-life attorney? Is there any other kind?

  33. george says:

    Is he likely to send all the money “home” to Guatemala, as illegals from Mexico are always sending money back to Mexico? More dollars leaving the country — this time a lot of dollars.

  34. Aj says:

    From the MONKEY administration all the way down to our court system….this country has become such a joke.

  35. Michael newman says:

    In some states, he wouldn’t be able to collect because a person must be ‘a legal resident’. Maybe Georgia needs to keep up with the times. Illegal is illegal.

  36. van says:

    What’s with the horrendously awful photo? Was there really no better photo they could’ve paired up with this story on the lottery?

  37. abusse says:

    I’m a california attorney who does mediations. Monday I had one where a driver tapped the rear of a van. Minimal damage. The two people in the van were illegal mexicans. No license, no insurance, unregistered car. They sued the other driver who was legal and had insurance. They are asking for $100K and won’t settle for less. The medical and impact says they are faking the injuries.. This was the first time I threw anyone out of a mediation.
    Today while walking into court I met a black guy who is an american citizen. He was going into curt to spend 5 days in jail for driving on a suspended license. He owned his car, is a citizen, had insurance.
    So what gives? The California courts must hate citizens just like the Governor, mayor and LA police Chief do. We have lost.

  38. ed says:

    Is he going to quit his job at the Home Depot parking lot?

  39. TJP says:

    It wasn’t taxpayer money that bought the ticket, therefore I actually support this. However, he should be charged taxes on his winnings, then back taxes and any government handouts he’s incurred since coming here should be applied as well. What’s left over – probably like half of his money – should be his to keep.

  40. Jan says:

    If he bought the ticket, he should keep the money.
    However, some of that money should be used to buy him a ticket back to his home country of Guatemala.

  41. Darla says:

    He is not a legal citizen, is not entitled to money that some legal citizen should have won. Boot his butt out of this country pronto!!!

    Now he can buy Guatemala. The whole country. And get change back. Change he can believe in, I Hope.

    1. krp says:

      I’ve been to Guatemala, obviously you haven’t. Great country. Good people. Lake Atitlan has been billed as the the most beautiful lake in the world. There is an American “colony” on the shores of Atitlan at Panajachel.

      Obviously you not know what you are talking about.

  46. Paul says:

    Hey congress, simple law, enter the country illegally, win the lottery, it goes into the treasury. PERIOD.

    1. krp says:

      Enter the country illegally, win the lottery, find someone you trust to cash it in. They take 10%, as a fee, you keep the rest, hire a lawyer and get normalized immigration status and be a legal immigrant.

  47. Joey says:

    Why not give him the keys to the White House as well??? That’s the direction we are all headed anyway if the leftist pukes have their way.

  48. DLS says:

    It funny how no one is saying anything about how he was taken advantage of by his employer… I suppose you are less than human if you are illegal… Very Christian… it’s okay to be abused because you’re not an American? Everyone is talking about the supposed govt assistance he should pay back. I feel the lazy people sitting on their sofas waiting for the first of the month to come around should not be allowed to win the lottery… I’m more appalled by the woman who continued to receive food stamps after she won one million $$$

    1. Steve'o says:

      Most so called Christians are Christians until money comes in to play. Then they tend to put Jesus in the closet. The employer didnt take advantage of him, he stole his money plain and simple and should be arrested.

    2. krp says:

      Actually, she took a lump sum payment that came out to be $500,000. Then of course the IRS took 35%, because she is now a 1%er. The idea that after paying $175,000 in Federal Income taxes I think that crowing over $200/month is ridiculous.

  49. NOBAMA 2012 says:

    Blah Blah Blah…Get the illegal alien out of my country and send Barry back to Indonesia while you’re at it. That squatter doesn’t belong in the White House.

  50. Steve'o says:

    I agree with you DLS. His employer is a thief and should do some time. He stole $750 K plain and simple. No different then the thieves on wall street. How many of these people are Christian I wonder? Thou Shall not Steal period. Not, its ok to steal from an immigrant if you are a citizen. Enough with the illegal immigrant. This country is a melting pot of immigrants except now we have a group of people in the government who decides who gets in and who doesnt. I wonder how many of the people making statements would even be here if we had the same immigration policies 100 plus years ago.

  51. Jimi Streets says:

    Figures that a story like this would bring out the racists here. Kind of like blood in a lake full of piranha. Hate illegal immigration, not illegal immigrants.
    This man, and every other illegal alien should be deported. Today. The fact is though, it ain’t gonna happen. Something HUGE needs to be done, but none of the Washington Weenies have the huevos to do anything that is effective in even controlling the flow across the border.
    I happy for the little guy that won his case against big prick of a boss he had. Now he can live comfortably back home in Guatemala.

    1. JeddMcHead says:

      Can we hate illegal immigrants when they commit crimes (murder, rape, etc.)? Is that okay with you, Jimi? Just checking, since you seem so tuned into what people should and shouldn’t be feeling — you insightful, deep, steaming pile of self-righteous indignation.

  52. JeddMcHead says:

    He would have sent it back to Mexico, anyway, as does much of the illegal-immigrant Mexican (tax free) money does. This way he can deliver it in person when he’s deported.

    1. krp says:

      If you weren’t so illiterate, you would have read the story and known that he is from Guatemala, so why would he send it to Mexico.

      Oh that’s right, you think that all “brown people” look alike.

      Now that he has a little money, he can hire an attorney and get legal residency and he would never be deported anyway. Shows how much you know. Moron.

  53. Paul Begala says:

    Stupid, Stupid Americans. Are you too dumb to realize that if you got rid of the 12 million illegal aliens that have invaded your country, there would be a LOT more jobs for legal citizens…and wages would necessarily increase and crime would decrease, etc, etc, etc.

  54. kirok says:

    Why not let him apply for citizenship. Then when he gets it, he can keep his money. Sounds like a good idea. I can’t see giving money to a guy who now has to go back to Guatamale with essentailly a kings ransom to live the high life. He broke the law to begin with, so basically by Federal law, any money won by this guy is null and void. However, once you have a left minded judge making decisions, well all bets are off.

    1. krp says:

      A) He now has money to hire an attorney and get legal residency.
      B) You must think that an application for citizenship is like an application for one of those grocery store club cards where you just fill out a form and they give you a card. Immigration is just another one of those government sponsored rackets where you can get anything you want if you pay an attorney enough money, but if you don’t pay, you don’t get.
      No one can apply for citizenship until they they are a permanent resident first. If someone applies for residency and it then denied (because they didn’t have enough money to pay the lawyers) then they would be deported, because they are in the system. It is safer to not contact immigration and not have any record in the system, until they have some ground to claim residency. Now that he has a little bit of money, he does.

  55. Grapost says:

    The State needs to re-write their lottery laws stating that only Legal Residents and U.S. Citizens are eligible to win lottery prizes. And that Tickets purchased by non- citizens are considered void.

    1. krp says:

      Legal residents are still non-citizens.

      What about someone from France that comes to the US for a week to visit DisneyWorld and happens to buy a lottery ticket on a whim? The purchase of lottery tickets goes to pay for education, so do you want to deny tourists contributing to the education fund? If they are not allowed to win, then why should they contribute?

    He is in the country illegally. If he was working his money was made illegally and no taxes were withheld from it either. He is also not a citizen, and therefor does not have the same rights nor access to our legal system to sue citizens.

    This illegal should have been charged for fraud since he had someone else claim the ticket, the money should have been forfeited, and he should have been deported.

  57. Uncle Reggie says:

    What does his immigration status have to do with this? Nothing.

  58. john says:

    I’m glad he kept his money. There is a basic premise in American society I don’t quite get. If we feel someone doesnt deserve their money, we want to give to the government. Leaving out the part about the right to decide who deserves their loot, I don’t quite see how giving it to the feds makes things better for me. If there was a mass movement to give this person’s cash to me I could see a rationale.

  59. GGM says:

    Where is the fine for the employer for knowingly hiring an illegal immigrant?

  60. rebecca says:

    For everyone commenting about him not paying taxes. If you win the lottery, you have 2 options cash option or annuity. With either one, taxes are taken out prior to the funds being disbursed.

  61. Chief544 says:

    Give him teh money and deport him. THAT is retribution. Could you imagine landing in Guatamala with $750,000 in your hand? He would ahve more relatives than he could count. Plus the bribes and “extra” costs for everything. The last place he wants to be is “home”.

  62. Peggy says:

    How’s about this one? Right after this illegal claims his winnings, he “gets” to take a ONE WAY TRIP back home, and is BARRED from ever re-entering the U.S., as he’s bound to be able to live in the richest part of whatever hole he came from?!

  63. Reality says:

    Just as long as the KBR/Halliburton/CCA lobby keeps middle-class whites under intense presuure to be kept in their “private” facilities to the tune of $350/day.When I was last in traffic court,there were >200 whites receiving up to five year prison sentances for a SECOND non-dui offense.There were two blacks(here in the south)who had their cases dismissed.
    The feds give the the private entity the moey REGARDLESS of guilt/ajudication.You can beat the rap,but NOT the ride.Oh,and you NOR your family are allowed to bail you out-convenient.Time for a second amendment revolution,folks.Big picture,small steps.

  64. Tim says:

    It’s like when I break into your house, if I find $20 on the floor, it’s mine.

  65. Scott says:

    Un frikin beleivable

  66. Stan says:

    I find the photo in you little story here a bit odd and interesting! Was this the alien from south of the boarder or will any photo of a “minority” do because you are too racist to do your news job? Hence the reason why I know “others” who will not travel down to the racist South where Teddy Turner and his boys live. Ha yes, La Raza and the rest of their dirty ilk are allowed to roam around because the riot and your are so afraid. Too bad the “others” don’t riot. And bet you Tea Partiers down there in the south don’t think your racists while donning your white sheets.

  67. Barb says:

    I have no problem with him collecting his money. Providing, that is, that he’s immediately deported once he picks it up!

  68. wmagg says:

    Any Judge or jury who are so ignorant of the law as reach this determination need to put out of our nations misery. There is no way to prove the validity of this case or that the winning ticket was bought with that particular 20 dollar bill. The person who bought the ticket for the ILLEGAL committed a crime and the ILLEGAL who asked for the ticket to be purchased Committed a crime. But I guess what the He!!
    if the criminals in D.C. can steal money from the people of this nation why should we stop CRIMINAL ILLEGALS from doing it. Where is ICE in all of this.?

  69. B. Samuel Davis says:

    Let her have the money – only if she leaves the country and takes 10 other illegals with her.!

  70. LouAnn says:

    “Hello? What’s wrong with this picture? Does this person belong here? Is he an american citizen? Is he here legally? If you can answer “no” to all three questions, then you need to take our AMERICAN money away from that ILLEGAL ALIEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. Steve says:

    If you are an illegal you should have no rights, period. Get the FCK out.

  72. Dorothy says:

    No he should not…

  73. Machismo says:

    The dude does not deserve to WIN THE LOTTERY. He should not have been in the United States, therefore, he should not have been here to buy the ticket, therefore, he does not get a dime! I do not think the boss should get it either. The money should go back into the pot.
