Hundreds nabbed for food stamp fraud in just one county


English: Logo of the .

An investigation launched from suspicion that Butler County’s skyrocketing food assistance dollars may be attributed in part to fraud, abuse and misuse has resulted in the arrest of hundreds and a taxpayer savings of $5.2 million since July 2012.

About $6.6 million is distributed monthly in Butler County via the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as food stamps.

In the past 18 months, $5.25 million has been saved by catching intentional program violators, according to the Butler County Sheriff\’s Office.

This is only from 1 county in 1 state. Can you imagine the waste, fraud and abuse being perpetrated across all counties in all states? And yet we are assured by Nancy Pelosi that there is absolutely nothing that can be cut from the federal budget. Really?
