Funny... The local clerks gets busted for stealing tens of thousands of dollars and they never get their picture in the paper and usually get probabation. Funnym politicians steal millions from the NY people everyday and give it to their friends pet projects that get cancelled, the companies get to keep the money and don't bring the jobs they promised. If only the politicians were held to the same laws as citizens.

So poor people..listen up...don't try to get ahead in the world...or they will come and arrest you. Just sit back and use the money and benefits they give you and just get wasted all the time..or they will arrest you!

I'm glad they are catching these people, if they keep doing this, at least we know that the people that actually NEED welfare, are the ones actually getting it. They need to do more home visits and everything else like they used to do back in the day.

Just wait, those 15 million people collecting unemployment, I figure about 1/2 of those people are working part time jobs or under the table.

Would be great to lock up 7 or 8 million Americans at a cost of 80K a year. If you think the economy is bad now....Just wait!!!
