Fighting The Free Fraud

Even government-supported fraud only goes so far:
The Department of Agriculture (USDA) first noted concern May 27 over the state ending food stamps benefits for qualified individuals. USDA Undersecretary Kevin Concannon and five state lawmakers are now urging federal investigators to intervene. The New Mexico Human Services Department (HSD) responded by noting it is already working with the USDA to resolve the issues.

“We find the allegations very troubling,” HSD Spokesman Kyler Nerison told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Which is why we immediately launched an investigation and asked the USDA to assist us long before this letter was written. In fact, our Inspector General continues to work with the USDA Office of Inspector General.”

A federal lawsuit alleges the state falsified applicant records to disqualify them from receiving benefits. Concannon warned in a letter to the USDA Office of Inspector General that the accusations could be considered criminal if true. The letter was first published June 23 by the New Mexico Political Report.
No fake free for them. Now on to the rest of the states...
