Amber Portwood

Allegedly Evicted

For Conning the Government

2/16/2012 12:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0215-amber-portwood-ex
"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood was tossed out of her Indiana home last month for scamming the government and mooching off taxpayer money -- this according to law enforcement sources.

Here's how it breaks down -- according to Amber's lease agreement, obtained by TMZ, the house she was renting in Anderson, Indiana had been subsidized by the state's "Low Income Rental Housing Tax Credit Program."

Problem is, in order to enroll in the program -- a prerequisite for moving in -- the reality star claimed she made roughly $10,000 a year ... MUCH less than what she actually earned in 2010 ... $280,000.

According to sources, Amber's massive income rendered her ineligible for subsidized housing -- no duh -- and that's the reason her landlords evicted her.

It doesn't really matter though -- Amber's still locked up in jail, awaiting final approval to enter a court-appointed drug rehab program.

"Teen mom"....Un-Fing believable! And she gets paid for it!!!!! This what our society has become across the Country. This gereations sence of entitlement and disregard for integrity is DOOMING our Country. Yah, lets all squirt out babys and live on "programs" and sit on our asses and get fat on government chees. This is exactly what our government fosters with easy welfare programs. Why isn't anyone going after "baby-daddy" and forcing the idiot to get a job and pay??? Oh yah, because he was raised on welfare too! What a great country we live in when we middle class citizens, who pay our taxes and don't have kids unitl we are married and can afford to have them, get to pay for all the ignorant, leg spreading s***. Go America! Way to set the exaple for the rest of the world.

What's amazing to me is that this is what we have on TV teaching our kids today. Show's like Teen MOM, Drunken Jersey Shore ethics, Dance Moms where they parents act so awful, or Rude and Obnoxious Housewives. None of this is ok programming! The Bachelor tramps throwing themselves at men for a proposal like a cat fight teaching young girls thats how you get a man's love and respect? Really?!? So of course this tramp thinks its ok to hide 280K her morals are corrupt from everything else she's learned.

Without a doubt Amber Portwood"s family are Obama supporters. Her relatives should get together with the Detroit woman wanting her cut of the "Obama stash". Entitlement mentality at its best!

I'm glad to see that some goverment agency is actually checking and correcting.
First thing that should happen to receive any government money, is to take and pass a Drug Test or prove that yiou are on prescribed med's.
Now get the other 50 million that are also cheating the system and we can have a lot of the thing's we need.

The problem with putting cheaters in jail is instead of subsidizing them, you end up totally supporting them. There has got to be a way to make them pay back what they stole, right away, or from future earnings.

I have no sympathy for her, she is an abusive c**t that should be in jail anyways, we all saw her punch kick and scratch her baby's father, that right there on LIVE tv should have been enough toput her angry ass in ADULT TIME OUT aka JAIL!
