Why reveal winner?

I was reading the small article in the Nov. 30 Spokesman-Review about the $4.2 million lottery winner. The winner asked to remain anonymous. The Spokesman-Review has filed a formal public disclosure request to obtain that name.

My question is this. Now, why would you do that? The only people who might want to know that information are relatives and close friends, and they probably already know.

You will be furnishing the name to everyone, including a whole community of dishonest people. Please honor their request and leave them alone.
