Say it ain't so! Octomom charged with welfare fraud
Who would have ever dreamed that "Octomom" Nadya Suleman was a welfare chiseler? The single mother of 14 could get 6 years. Yesterday the Los Angeles DA's office announced Suleman did not disclose income she collected while on public assistance. She was not immediately arrested but was ordered to appear in court Friday. Prosecutors are expected to ask for $25,000 bond. It seems Octomom had put 30 grand into her private stash without bothering to tell her social worker.
The versatile entertainer has appeared in at least one porn flick, had a nude dancing gig in a Florida strip club, and at the apex of her stunning career squared off against the legendary Amy Fisher in a celebrity boxing match. True, she is no Tonya Harding but the pride of Portland didn't have 14 kids when she was in the ring.
"While applying for public aid, the mother of 14 children allegedly failed to disclose that she was also getting checks for personal appearances and residuals from videos," the district attorney's office said in a statement.
