Sex Offender Wins Lottery Run By Sex Abuse Group

SEE that headline above? If only it were true then the irony would not be so acute.

In Alaska, sex offender Alec Ahsoak has won $500K in a lottery operated by a group not run by sex offenders but one that seeks to help victims get over the ordeal.

When a non-profit that helps rape victims decided to hold a lottery in Alaska, there’s no way that they could have known that the $500,000 jackpot would go to a registered sex offender.

But that’s just what happened when they pulled the winning ticket Friday night in the Standing Together Against Rape raffle.

KTUU-TV says Alec Ahsoak, the 53-year-old winner, was convicted three times of sexually abusing minors.

Now he has enough money to go to Thailand and pay for them…
