If these people are going to have felony charges brought against them so should the people that ok'd the payments. There is a person or persons responsible for arranging the payment process, and they should be brought up on charges also. I always thought that if you needed welfare then you should get it after proving you need it, but for these people to get government subsidies plus collecting rent from the tenants, I don't understand how that happened. I thought there was a system of checks and balances in place just for this reason, I guess not.

I agree that the people who approved these bogus checks didn't do their jobs and should be charged along with the others.

I also beleive this is just the tip of the iceburg. More investigations and digging will turn up many many more of these scum bags. They need to be put on a chain gang and work off the money they stole from the taxpayers. No punishment would be too severe ... especially WORK!

I agree that there needs to be more checks and balances done so this doesn't happen again. But think about it !!! politicians do the same thing to all of us taxpayers.Take our money and use it fradulantly on themselves or other purposes. So we also have to blame the politicians, lawmakers and all of govt. who write and enforce these laws as well for they are crooks too!!! Tese people deserve punishment but so does govt!!!!

You are right...there should be checks and balances...that is why this doesn't really make sense to me...there are TONS of mistakes in Section 8 and they are using some of these people to cover up their problems. Be careful how you judge...the news media doesn't always tell the truth.

But the worst case here in Indiana had to have been the mother of Tommisue Hilbert (the call girl/stipper married to former Conseco CEO Steve Hilbert) living in the $300,000 "guest cottage" on the Hilbert compound and making money selling priceless antiques and STILL getting the welfare checks and benefits she received when Tommisue was a student at Ben Davis High School and they lived in Mars Hill!! What a case of fraud that was! Oh well, I loved the news report of Steve and Tommisue having to sell off their "priceless" works of art and collectibles as a court-ordered mandate when he filed bankruptcy! Ahhh...what comes around, goes around!!

Just incase someone else checks in on this, the truth is out. Mr. Dillard was acquitted on all charges. But don't believe me, do your homework.

i would like to see the low lifes who supposedly represent hoosiers in indianapolis at the statehouse be jailed for stealing tax monies on frivolous things like introducing a bill to serve beer at the state fair. think of the cost of printing this stupid crap to give out to the other legislators and the time used at lsa and the research that it takes to introduce crap like that.
stupid idiots.
