    Watched her on Fox a few minutes ago. She said she took a cash payout of 700k +, and after taxes, it was " half ". I donno for sure, but I think I could make do with 500k. In order to get food stamps in Fla, your income has to meet, or be below a set figure.

    I'm bettin she's going to wind up regretting all this attention.

    $1M lottery winner still happily uses food stamps


    Amanda Clayton, a 24-year-old mother of two, won a $1 million jackpot last

    fall, and chose to take the lump sum, which, after taxes, was about $500,000

    She bought a new car and a new house.

    Yet, she's still collecting $200 a month in food stamps.

    Her excuse? Since the government didn't cut her off she kept taking it.

    "I feel that it's OK because I have no income, and I have bills to pay.

    I have two houses," Clayton told WDIV 4 in Detroit.

    For the time being, her actions apparently aren't illegal.

    Legislation is pending that would cut off lottery winners from the welfare system.

    UNREAL !!!:mad:

    Did she report the lottery winnings to the welfare agency as income, or did she fail to mention her windfall? That could become the crux of making her actions illegal.

    Then again, we already know who she will be voting for in November.

    this is the dream from his father Obama wants. he would nod approvingly if he knew.

    part of the problem this nation faces is the extreme entitlement mentality of people like this. no pride, no sense of self worth, no need to pay her own way even if they can.

    Lottery winnings have to be reported on your 1040 FED as gambling winnings, you will get a W-2G from the lottery.

    Each state and their welfare programs can vary, she might be in the clear in MI, I don't know.

    They pass the law, they can stop it, but backdating isn't legal. Cut her off and make it public. Amazing, of course the thing is how many are abusing the system now with no lottery winnings, just welfare winnings? The amount of money wasted there far outstrips what this woman is milking.
    I remember actual food stamps, guys would come in and buy a small item of $.50 or less,, pocket the change, walk out, come back in, buy another one, keep this up for a while, then rush in with all that change and buy a twelve pack of beer, and walk out snickering.

    They busted her yesterday ( on Fox this morning ). She facing charges, and has to pay back the funds she received since the wind-fall ( probably w/interest too ).

    Hopefully she hasn't spent all of the windfall.
