Michigan lottery winner charged with welfare fraud - We can't have white lotto winners doing this


LANSING, Mich. – A 25-year-old woman from Lincoln Park, Mich., who continued to collect food stamps after winning the state lottery's $1 million Make Me Rich! game show has been charged with two felonies for welfare fraud, Attorney General Bill Schuette said Tuesday.

Amanda Clayton, whose use of a food stamp bridge card was uncovered earlier this year by WDIV-TV, was to be arraigned Tuesday on charges of failing to inform welfare officials of her winnings or the fact that she was employed for five months in 2011, Schuette said in a joint announcement with Director Maura Corrigan of the Michigan Department of Human Services.

They said Clayton illegally collected about $5,475 in food and medical assistance from August 2011 through March 2012.

Each of the two charges of welfare fraud, failure to inform is punishable by up to four years in prison.

"It's simply common sense that million-dollar lottery winners forfeit their right to public assistance," Schuette said in a statement.

Clayton won the televised game Sept 12, 2011, and reportedly took home more than $500,000. She told WDIV-TV that she thought she was justified in continuing to collect the state payments after her windfall because she was now unemployed.

"I feel that it's OK because, I mean, I have no income and I have bills to pay,' she said. 'I have two houses.' "

I could see if she forgot for a month, but she was at it much longer. She says she's unemployed, you can't give an idiot money, all they know how to do with it is spend it foolishly. I guess it's time to get a job again, you've had that money for a few minutes now and it's probably all gone now, isn't it?

If you work and save a half million dollars, you appreciate it, if you are just given it, it doesn't mean a thing.

I'm not saying that what she did was right - but let's review:
* She had a welfare CARD - that means it's electronic
* Employers have to file payroll tax reports electronically with the State. So the info that she's working is IN A STATE COMPUTER.
* She won a State game - they deducted taxes and gave her a 1099 form - that's IN A STATE COMPUTER.

So someone tell me, why the fuck the State can't find their ass with both hands, and a bright light, outside at noon and just DEACTIVATE her "Welfare Card" automatically when it detects she's employed or won a State lottery?

Fine the bitch - get your money back. Use it to fix the fucked up computer programs, and move on.

Lets see, she collects the $1mil over 20 years which is $50k and after taxes gets about $32k a year. Sounds like she may be eligible for some assistance, if she's raising a family. Unlike the husband/wife mutts on city/government payrolls who've been doing it for years, but will never be investigated because the Dems can't afford to upset vote pool.
