Minnesota state lottery director resigns amid questions about work travel

- The director of the Minnesota state lottery resigned abruptly Friday following a Star Tribune report that revealed he was reimbursed for staying in his own timeshare unit while traveling for work, the Associated Press reported.

Gov. Mark Dayton accepted Van Petten’s resignation Friday.
