Retirement Is Dependent on V.I. Lottery?

Dear Source:

What on earth did GERS ever do before there was a lottery? (Is that their 'You gotta play if you wanna win' philosophy?)
Here's a better question: Can we get an independently audited report detailing where lottery proceeds have been spent? It's hard to see any improvements in public schools.
