A Seattle woman who is receiving welfare assistance from Washington state also happens to live in a waterfront house on Lake Washington worth more than a million dollars.
Federal agents raided the home this weekend but have not released the woman or her husband's name because they have not officially been charged with a crime.
However, federal documents obtained by KING 5 News show the couple currently receives more than $1,200 a month in public housing vouchers, plus state and government disability checks and food stamps. They have been receiving the benefits since 2003.
The 2,500 square-foot home, which includes gardens and a boat dock, is valued at $1.2 million. And even though the couple has been receiving the benefits for nearly 10 years, records show that they accurately listed the address of their current home when applying for the state and federal benefits.
A federal official told KING 5 that the couple likely took advantage of a loophole, which allows low-income individuals to receive financial assistance to help them pay their rent and move away from housing projects. However, the law does not require officials to verify what type of home the benefits recipient is living in.
As if the million dollar home weren't enough, the supposedly low-income couple also gave money to various charities and traveled around the world to locales in Turkey, Tel Aviv and resort towns in Mexico, according to court records.

The only difference is they didn't tell anyone what they were going to do for them and renege on it!

and suggested instituting mandatory piss tests after a conversation samD and I had a while back. I'm sure I got blown off, but I don't get it. I have to pass piss tests as condition of my employment, as do all state and federal employees and employees of many private businesses. My recommendation was, I thought, reasonable even for democrats. Fail a piss test and you lose welfare benefits for six months. Fail a second time and you lose benefits forever. It would save all kinds of money, plus stimulate the local economy through bribery and cheating. Too easy.

vote. It is a conflict of interest. Why should they vote, when they receive the benefits?
Once they are off of welfare and have a job, their rights would be reinstated.
Do we have any legal minds that can get this going... We have to fight back or we are done...

I agree,

who in their right mind would vote against the hand that feeds them?
If that 'hand' is voted out by the productive members of society then we win but as long as the dead beats vote en mass for the entitlement crowd, we are doomed.

My two cents

Whenever I renew my documents for work, or if I am injured at work, or if I look crossed eye at any of the orfice people I am handed a cup and told to fill it. Yet in the great state of florida you can walk in with a doobie hanging from your lip a forty in your hand and fill out your paperwork for benifits and they don't say anything, when the piss test was put into affect the damn liberals said that it cost too much and was an invasion of privacy. WTF If any one has read the william johnstone sereis of ash books you can see where this is going. I may be the bert gomer of the group and be the only one that thinks our beloved USA is going to hell in a handbasket. Whew!!!!!!!! I feel better

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

welfare stuff

While Texas is trying to pass voter fraud prevention laws, these same people are whining that we are trying to disenfranchise minorities. I like to turn it on them, though. I tell them, "So you're saying minorities are trying to commit fraud? You racists bastard." lol

So with this afirmative action thing, you are essentially saying minorities are too dumb and lazy to get work or get promoted on their own merits, so you have to grade on a curve for the dumb little jungle bunnies, is that what you mean? They're all stupid? That has to be why you instituted that program, otherwise you'd let them compete on the strength of their own work ethic and intelligence.

I went to court today

and beat a speeding ticket,well almost,if i do not get another ticket in a year it will be dismissed.I didn't want the ticket on my record,without going into a lot of detail i didn't deserve this ticket,i got caught passing a semi by a radar,so i brought a copy of my driving record with me,met the prosecuting attorney and said " see these tickets for speeding( 8 of them over 40 years of driving),i deserved those,i paid the fines.This one i didn't deserve,so i am here talking to you.My last speeding ticket was over 10 years ago."

the prosecuter and i made a deal,what's that got to do with this thread you are wondering? well when i went to pay the court fee of 75.00,they gave me a form asking for my ethnicity,check the appropriate box please.Just another to fast white boy i guess.
