In March 2012, a group of 15 McDonald's employees pooled money and sent Mirlande Wilson off to buy lottery tickets. One was a $105 million winner, but Wilson insisted it was a ticket she bought separately from the group. Wilson refused to split the money. "I don't know if I won. Some of the numbers were familiar. I recognized some of [them],'' Wilson said, not doing a great job of convincing her coworkers, who are currently suing her, accusing her of pretending to lose the ticket but instead giving it to three public school workers who claimed the money and cut her a share. Wilson denies the allegations.
