    I'm sure they were acting stupidly when they charged her. We should have a food stamp summit...... more folks are on them now than at any time in our history. Invite them all for beer and government cheese!

    I believe her excuse was that her lottery winnings weren't actually "income" so that's why she continued to take the welfare.

    Good to see her charged. This kind of crap has to stop, we're broke.

    She needs a tax refresher. I believe it's considered "unearned income".

    Never would have been caught had it not been on the news.

    Perhaps she could call it "investment income". She invested in a ticket, it earned a payoff. If she had waited 6 months before cashing in the ticket, she might have claimed she should pay taxes on it at the long-term capital gains rate!

    I am kidding, of course ... or am I?

    With the current tax code? It's hard to tell.
