Having never (and I am grateful) needed public assistance, I don't know how that works. I suppose they give you a monthly allowance and allow you to let it accumulate. Why anyone would sond their own money and let their welfare funds accumulate is pretty hard to comprehend. Is this common?
Recently, I was in line behind an EBT lady and I offered to pay her tab to get her the **** out of my way since she was moving so slow. She had 33¢ on her EBT card. So by [paying $5 or so, I got 33¢ credit - lucky me. So I must admit I'm baffled about this case. Do you have a link to the story please?
As you are well aware, tax evasion or pimping would get you serious jail time. Her short sentence give me insight to a least one of her clients , maybe a judge?
So, do you think that welfare fraud (on an individual scale - not large criminal rings) is punished? What do think (guess) the percentage of liars get welfare?
((discussion, not argument))
There is no felony charges, just misdemeanors. Welfare and tax fraud gets you a misdemeanor, now that is real punishment, if I say so myself.On Friday, the 30-year-old Wright was sentenced to 10 months in jail for 20 counts including prostitution, conspiracy, tax evasion and theft by deception.
The scandal in the seaside town of Kennebunk, known for its sea captain's mansions, beaches and New England charm, became a sensation following reports that she had at least 150 clients, some of them prominent. So far, those who have been charged include a former mayor, a high school hockey coach, a minister, a lawyer and a firefighter.
Wright was originally charged with 106 counts. All the counts in the agreement were misdemeanors, including three counts relating to welfare and tax fraud that were reduced from felonies.

As the article strongly implies, she made a plea bargain with the DA. Plea bargains often result in jail sentences far less than what would have been applied had the case gone to trial, and the offender found guilty. I don't see how the reduced sentence offers any insight into any relationships she may or may not have had.
As far as you question goes, everyone lies at one time or another, so just divide the # of people receiving welfare by the total population and you'll have your answer (Note: the majority of welfare recipients are young children)
Are you being intentionally bizarre? "Young children" don't apply for welfare. The parents do on their behalf. The parents are (potentially) the deceptive ones, not the children.
Since you are so experienced, provide a link that shows children receiving direct welfare benefits. Amaze me please.
