Governor Brewer activates new food stamp fraud prevention unit (AZ)
KVOA TUCSON ^ | 7/2/10 | Unspecified

Posted on 07/03/2010 5:07:41 AM PDT by exbrit

PHOENIX - Governor Jan Brewer and the Arizona Department of Economic Security set in motion a new anti-fraud unit effective July 1. The new DES Trafficking Detection Unit will ensure that people obtaining food stamps are not using these benefits illegally.

"We have an obligation to taxpayers," said Governor Brewer. "These benefits can only be used by people who are eligible and need help. The State of Arizona will not tolerate any abuse of government benefits. The Nutrition Assistance Program is a necessary part of the safety net, particularly in these difficult times, but these benefits must be used to purchase food. Anything else is illegal."

If they ever tried to get most of the fraud out of these programs, we might actually be able to afford them.

...good for her!...although I’m sure she’ll get accused of ‘racism’ for throwing welfare cheats off the dole.

I love Jan Brewer standing up for ALL Americans!

A bit OT but recently she stated there are beheadings occurring in AZ desert. Does anyone have any background on this story?

"... I’m sure she’ll get accused of ‘racism’ for throwing welfare cheats off the dole. "

Thanks to the "O.J." example, they have learned that yelling "racist" will even negate "murder". It's the only perceived "defense" of those who commit crimes.

America leads the world in civil rights...but it cannot be a "free-for-all".

“Our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert, either buried or just lying out there, that have been beheaded,” she added.

I have heard this fraud is really easy to do if you go into those little stores owned by the foreigners.

I know if you go into a regular grocery store, there is no way something will get by because if you do make a purchase for an item not covered by food stamps, the register tells you how much you owe for that product.

My teenage daughter said something to me about this just last night. She said she heard on the news there were more beheadings.

And my niece decides to go to Mexico for her honeymoon....geesh.

Thanks for the link. One of my Facebook "friends" posted an article that supposedly debunks Brewer's statement and I'm seeking info to rebut.

Like you, I would believe Jan Brewer before any liberal/socialist who lies as naturally as breathing.

Just waiting for Obama to publicly declare that it is impossible to get rid of 100% of the fraud, therefore he won't work to get rid of any of it and will sue Arizona to force them to maintain the current fraud level or even increase it.

Not ever having seen or used food stamps, I have a question. What’s to prevent food stamp recipients from selling the food stamps to someone else for cash? What kind of ID is required for the redemption of food stamps?

Actually, it's true. There was also a body found in Phoenix dumped along side the freeway that had been beheaded.

Back when they were “food stamps”, you had to have a special ID to use them. Nowadays, they are debit cards. You know the code, you can use it.

Most states have EBT debit cards now. They would have to sell the card along with the PIN. If they went to get a new card the old one would be disabled.

I’m thinking if they harm Gov. Brewer, we’re gonna have a good old fashioned ugly war on our hands. Problem is, this president might try to fight from the wrong side!

I don’t trust that slimeball in the WH.

If so, it will have to be the Arizona National Guard that runs the scum into the ground.

The RaceMarxist won’t lift a finger to retaliate for any violence against a conservative white woman. Particularly one that has daily exposed his incompetent, anti-American, Ivy League ass.

If their food stamp card also contains their welfare money, they can get cash back. Which they then go use for lottery tickets, booze and cigs. Happens every day in Memphis.

Happy Independence Day, Arizona! You still have the spirit of America!

It’s not just territory in Arizona that is off limits to US citizens and dangerous to enter.

We have been warned for years to not enter public lands in California and Oregon because of the armed cartels. Last summer groups of ‘spanish speaking’ men were patrolling our country roads in the middle of the night...they are now fighting each other for control of OUR land!

MUST see video.

There was in Louisiana when I was a kid. I was a cashier at a grocery store, and we had to check ID and there were lots of items that could not be purchased with food stamps.

Brewer isn’t wrong on this. There is SO much mutilation and beheading in Mexico that it has to be here as well.

THIS is what is going on in Mexico...(too graphic to post)....coming to your town soon!

It’s silly to think this isn’t going on here by the same criminals that do it every day in Mexico!

Ok, if you are talking about food stamps(which are not really stamps any longer)that’s true, but cash aid comes in the form of a debit card which can be used at ATMs for cash, which can be used for anything the welfare recipient wishes to buy, including booze and smokes, or illegal drugs. Cash aid is given to people with children, the more kids, the more cash. At least that is how it works in CA.
