Something weird is going on in Wisconsin.

Here in Michigan, we are audited on a regular basis for food stamp fraud! We even have an Office of Inspector general that goes through cases to make sure that only qualifying people receive that benefit. A waiver or permission from the feds has never been required! Does WI depend on FoodShare and/or food stamps being 100% federally funded? If so, this still doesn’t make sense.

Medicaid fraud in MI is another story.

MI OIG has qualification and review.

Gov. Walker is trying to tackle FoodShare fencing fraud by retailers. After-the-fact fraud by 'retailers' (bodegas, Uncle Mohammed's, etc.), ie, what people do with their food stamps for cash.

As you probably already know, it's a huge problem in the Rust Belt.
