SO they lived on a 1.2 mil yacht, drove a 30k car and STILL were allowed to collect welfare from 2 separate states for 7 years.. I HOPE to heck the judge gives them the max sentence the law allows.
Fraud like this though will still continue to exist as long as we let people claim welfare/food stamps etc, without ANY oversight on whether those claiming it are actually worthy/qualify..

Take welfare/stamps away for working age adults and the vast majority will find a job and live within their means. That means no breeding.

I plan on living in the Empire State Building one day and collect food stamps. Granted, it will be the janitor's closet or the boiler room where nobody looks, but dammit! I can say I live in one awesome location!
