A Michigan woman who won the lottery but continued to receive food assistance from the state government has had her benefits pulled, officials said.
Amanda Clayton hit it big playing the Michigan Lottery. Like many winners, she used her $1 million prize to buy a new house.
But the Lincoln Park, Michigan, resident continued to receive money in another form - $200 a month in state food assistance, according to CNN Detroit affiliate WDIV.
Her story made headlines, and on Thursday, the state's Department of Human Services announced that she is no longer getting the benefits.
According to Michigan law, welfare recipients must report any changes in assets or income to the agency within 10 days.
The department "relies on clients being forthcoming about their actual financial status. If they are not, and continue to accept benefits, they may face criminal investigation and be required to pay back those benefits," Director Maura Corrigan said in a statement.
Hi Everyone, It looks like hamsta doesn't have any facts to back up his bigoted remarks.
no i had to kick my chickenhead to the curb so im busy cooking.i really dont think any of you would come to the 9th ward and call me a coward.besides i stated the facts and you will find out im correct at a later date just like i hit the nail on the head about your beloved occupy movement 6 months ago.
Kicking back and drinking the 40's and babbling AGAIN, hammy?
I guess, chrissy! LMAO!
@greek american the very definition of the word nazi is:NATIONAL SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY.who are the socialists?GREECE OBAMA HIS SUPPORTERS AND THE OCCUPY PROTESTORS.it is you who is the NEO NAZI.
Hamsta is on welfare. He has admittied it in the past. He is a hypocrite. He is no more a conservative than the man on the moon. He is just a poor, sad, little bitterman who is alone. Poor hamsta. Railing against the very thing he lives on.
Because the word socialist is in the definition of NAZI, you really think that that is what Socialism is? Uh, nope. No equasion at all. Forget it. Stay ignorant the rest of your life.
i'm sure he thought the ddr was democratic, too..
Leeintulsa: he wiukd think it stands for dance, dance revolution.
The sooner you admit the self-hatred because you yourself are on the public dole, the faster you can begin to heal.
Okay here is the most recent research on the Keystone pipeline. transportation is dangerous,duh. 3x more greenhouse gases per barrel than regular oil. It will increase greenhouse gas emissions by 38 million tons, equivilent to putting 6 million new cars on the road-Houston Chronicle
Air alliance Houston says that it causes more emissions of sulfur dioxide and more particle matter. (anyone with alergies might not want it)
Tom Rudolph, a farmer directly affected in the plans, from Circle, Mont. says they (pipeline) lacks a spill response plan.
Canada thru to Texas route passes thru some of the most valuable agricultural land in the United States. The area is also home to the giant Ogallala Aquifier, which pprovides drinking water and irrigation for the high plains.
Opps, I guess I will come back at a better time. lol I guess I always wonder why some people cannot understand we are in this together. I cannot believe some people still think socialist, when every republican except Bachman and the tea partiers so not believe it. Propaganda.
And Bush did not come. But with the oil spill Hamsta, Obama did. So go by what he does humanly possible with a tea party and republican congress. You did not even get food stamps? Talk to Republican Bobby Jindal man. He fought President Obama with getting La. help when he came into office in. Jindal was also the man who was fighting Obama on the oil cleanup.
lol @ mama, dont be afraid, we got you girl! hamsta is just pouting because hes wrong, as he normally is, and he has no respect for people in general, and women in particular! and all the food stamps on the 9th ward wont buy him a new chickenhead!

Roflmmfao @ the 40s, that was funny,that and callin it dinner! Figures!
Hows that song go? Money cant buy me love? In his case neither can the food stamps!
He's very busy stalking around the 9th ward looking for his Big Macs, case of beer, and a girl for tonight. His weekly welfare check is in arrears and he needs some lovin. He might just have to get that from his fish tank.
Our commander in chief did not "inheirit" the presidency . He campaigned HARD for it and any mess or whatever came with it.
