That woman will go through that 700K in under 2 years.

State, local and federal governments are broke, so why instead of cutting the size and spending of government, does government become involved in gambling schemes?

I have the feeling that whatever entity (local/state/federal govt) provides her food stamps will see this differently. I am pretty sure she is required to tell them of any change in her ‘circumstances,’ and $700K is a change in most people’s circumstances.

Until she spends all that $700K, which likely won’t be long, her assets would be too high to qualify for food stamps unless she puts the bulk of it into buying a house. I think a house/car are exempt.

It’s not real money, it’s Obama’s stash. It’s for us.

She should be arrested. She should have reported the change in income, so basically she’s committed welfare fraud.

I used to do audits in centers. You wouldn’t believe the multiple wives that got benefits. I bet that’s why Michigan let’s people get away with it.

Don’t you need a social security number to get it or just ID?

They need a serious housecleaning in Michigan.

I thought this was wrong at first, until I learned she paid around $300k in taxes. Kind of seems fair... just sayin.

Something is not being reported in this story.

In most states, Food Stamps are denied to people under 60 years of age who have more than $3000 in assets, excluding their home and car.

>> this woman apparently feels no shame in being on the government dole

It’s a mentality the Democrats have worked hard at fostering. Impressive, no?

This story is about the size of the winnings and the resultant black eye for the state. If they were serious about this and the ultimate goal should be food aid going for food and not lottery tickets then they would have been scanning the rolls far sooner. The loss of benefits for a few months after winning $1000 would deter at least a few people from gambling. The state (all of them really) have known all along that people are using aid money in this way. They never cared because it cycled the money right back to the state.

She's not the only lottery winner in Michigan collecting welfare. Michigan (like Florida) doesn't count lottery winnings as income.

Leroy Fick won $2 million in Michigan in June 2010 and stayed on electronic food stamps. He said people who complained are busybodies, after he collected $850,000 cash and stayed on welfare.
