Congressman from NJ wins $25,000 in lottery

U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone of New Jersey has hit the lottery.

Pallone reported earning $25,000 from the New Jersey Lottery in his financial disclosure form for 2010 that was released this week. The report was filed May 13 but doesn't say more specifically when last year Pallone won the lottery.

His office says the Democrat, his brother and his father pool their money for lottery tickets. The three men evenly split a $75,000 jackpot.
