A guy here just won the lottery and he is now a millionaire. This happened about 3 weeks or so ago. Not sure about the exact date, anyway, he is still receiving food assistance!!!!! He had to only claim his winnings as one week "earnings". He just lost his S.S.I. today when the the fed gov got wind of his winfall. The State of Michigan is offically is the most (insert description here) lol What are ya'll thoughts??

This little asshole actually HIRED an atty!!!!!!!!!!! WHY?!?!?! He still wants to remain on his food asst!!!!!! WHY?!? GrrrrrrrrrrAnswer Question

I think that it's pathetic that someone could come into that kind of money and still feel okay about receiving assistance (legally or not). People like that are a drain on society and while he has his million set aside and is still receiving help, someone else in need goes without because he only cares about his bottom line. It mostly just makes me sad for people that need help but can't get it because they make $5 too much to qualify.

I agree with QuinnMae 100% I just could not in good conscience continue taking assistance when I knew I did not need it. He can live comfortably for the rest of his life as long as he does not go on a massive spending spree.

I do think its wrong but its more about the system then the person. The story said he informed them of the winnings and they said he gets to keep his food stamps. I think he is also a little bitter about them taking 1 mil of his winnings.
I wouldn't do it personally though.
