A former stripper from Florida is under fire for using $24,000 in food stamp money to buy $10,000 in plastic surgery, a pricey stereo system, and a custom pink paint job for her car. The 28-year-old says she was homeless and unemployed when she applied for food stamps for her and her five kids.
But she eventually got a job as an exotic dancer and pulled in $85,000 a year in tips. During that same time she raked in around $1,000 a month in federal aid. She claims the plastic surgery, paint job, and stereo were actually gifts from men she entertained at the strip club.
But it doesn’t matter because she really shouldn’t have been getting food stamps. She has been sentenced to 1 ½ years in a federal prison. Do you know anyone who uses food stamps for anything other than food?
