Rena McCarter of Kenner, La., pleaded guilty Friday, Oct. 26, to wrongly taking $8,600 in disaster relief funds from the federal government after Hurricane Katrina. She was residing in Minnesota when the storm hit.
McCarter, 62, admitted in her plea deal that in 2005, she told the Federal Emergency Management Agency that her apartment and personal property had been damaged by the disaster in Louisiana, and that she needed emergency help for housing, food and clothing. In fact, McCarter was living in housing subsidized by the Metropolitan Council from October 2004 through September 2009, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Minnesota District.
Hurricane Katrina made landfall in the U.S. on Aug. 29, 2005.
In 2008, McCarter also faxed a fraudulent application to FEMA for disaster relocation assistance, which brought her $1,458 -- which is included in the $8,600 total.

I wonder how many people are still living on Katrina WELFARE.
These people are amazing.
They cannot get out of High School, but they know every scam in the book to steal from the Government.
why no photo of perp ?
A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G. The. Federal. Government. Is. Involved. In. Is Going. TO. Get. Scammed. Need I repeat it?
Just another lay-about bilking the system and stealing OUR MONEY.
Other scanners show them the ropes.
You don’t have to be that smart to rip off the government. Just willing to cheat and in some instances all that is required is persistence.
Not to mention there are likely demwads on the inside who help the scanners,too.
Job security doncha know.
