Octomom is in the news again, in relation to welfare. The L.A. County Department of Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation is investigating whether the mother of 14 may have committed welfare fraud, according to reports from both E! and TMZ.
The complaint filed is that Nadya Suleman is collecting welfare benefits including food stamps even though she made around $200,000 last year with her video and a few other publicity gigs. Under California law, she is only entitled to government assistance if her income is less than $119,000. If she is actually convicted she could risk going to jail for up to three years!
