That’s irony

I came across this story tonight and it struck me as the very definition of irony:

An Alaska lottery held to raise money for a group that helps sexual abuse victims had a surprise winner: a convicted sex offender.

Alec Ahsoak, who according to the state sex offender registry was convicted in 1993 and 2000 for sexual abuse of a minor, came forward Saturday with the winning ticket for the $500,000 Lucky Time Pull Tabs jackpot.

According to lottery organizer Abe Spicola, Ahsoak “was going to buy a house and said he was going to donate part of it to God, and, you know, charity.”
