Octomom

Charged with Felony Welfare Fraud

0113_octomom_tmz
Octomom has just been charged with 3 felony counts of welfare fraud and now faces more than 5 years in prison if convicted on all counts, TMZ has learned.

The L.A. County District Attorney's Office filed the charges, including 1 count of aid by misrepresentation, and 2 counts of perjury by false application for aid. The D.A. claims Octomom -- real name Nadya Suleman -- failed to report nearly $30,000 in earnings between January 1-June 30, 2013.

Octo is accused of failing to disclose income between January and June of 2013 -- specifically, money that she got from personal appearances and residuals from videos.  TMZ knows ... the video in question is a masturbation video.

The D.A. is asking the judge to set bail at $25,000.

How dare people call her trash? We want to populate the world. In fact Republicans don't want abortion. So they should never whine.

What good does it do to know what she made from Jan to July, when she and her 14 children have nothing now? Are the children to be penalized now, for what Mom made 6 months ago? The State need to worry about what Mom is "GOING" to make, in the future, so, she can pay back!

She is always getting into brushes with the law but never seems to serve time for it. I can't believe there are those who pay her for personal appearances. I would believe, however, that they pay her to stay away.

There are many people that are cheating the welfare system every day, so there is really no benefit for the government to single this woman out. She does not need to go to jail, she needs to be trained to do some sort of job in her home which will enable her to take care of these children. I believe she loves her children, she was just misguided.

My adopted son was once talking to me and he said Ma when I get my check I am going to spend some and keep some. I said what check baby? He said my welfare check.
I said baby the only check you are going to get is the one you work for. He said but my other Mother got a check. I said do you see me get a check? No only on Fridays. I said yes because I work everyday and every night. He now works all kind of hours to get his check. No more talk of welfare checks.

Saw this one coming a long time ago. She really isn't that attractive, she had her 15 minutes for birthing her litter (animals have been doing it for a very long time) and she wanted to keep living the glamorous life.
