Woman Bagged $200K in Food Stamps While Running $1M Business

A Pittsburgh-area woman is facing criminal charges for allegedly bagging $200,000 in food stamps while she operated a business that received $1.24 million from Pennsylvania’s Department of Human Services.

Authorities charged Kimberly Coleman, 35, of Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, with three counts of welfare fraud, the Associated Pressreported.

Each count carries a penalty of up to seven years in prison, meaning Coleman could spend a maximum of 21 years behind bars if convicted on all counts.

Make an example of her, slam her with the max possible sentence and make her work to pay it back. Leeches like her give the program a bad name for people that actually need it.

Let everyone that applies for it dawn as much as possible. It can be done if you people would pay more taxes.

Yes, there are people who honestly and desperately need food stamps. We would be able to offer them more dollars if so much wasn't wasted on fraud and illegals receiving these benefits.

She needs to repay the food stamps and account for every penny of the 1.24 million she received and every penny not accounted for needs to be given back... bankrupt her!
