Report: 3K SNAP Retailers Used SSNs of Deceased During Obama Admin

More than 3,000 Obama administration-approved Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) retailers used Social Security numbers of dead people when reporting SNAP redemptions to the federal government, according to a recent report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI).

The report from GAI, where Breitbart News Senior-Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer serves as president, went through a January 2017 audit from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Office of the Inspector General (OIG).

The audit examined SNAP retailers for 21 months between October 2013 to June 2015–the period during the Obama administration right after food stamp enrollment reached its highest recorded level since the welfare program’s inception.

All of those retailers should be prosecuted and barred from future participation due to fraud!

Bet Wal-mart knows something about this?
