32 Arrested For Food Stamp Fraud


More than three dozen people were arrested in a single New York town on charges of food stamp fraud, having used their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards to buy booze, obtain cash, and purchase other items not covered by food stamps for the past year.

Not only did this fraud happen at the same town and the same store, but this is the second time that the store owner has been arrested for orchestrating such welfare fraud.

Perhaps this incident will serve as a wake-up call for leftists, forcing them to question their stance on the welfare state and how entitlements are administered in this country.

Or maybe they will use this opportunity to gloat about how none of the people arrested were black "welfare queens", claiming this debunks the conservative "myth" that only black people use food stamps--even though "conservatives", or anyone else concerned about welfare fraud, have never, ever claimed that!
