Lottery Winner on Food Stamps

Amanda Clayton is a 24 year old from Lincoln Park, Michigan, who won the Michigan Lottery.  She got $1 millon, but complained that it wasn’t really that much, since the government took 1/3 of it in taxes.  She got caught using $200 a month in food stamps, despite her million dollar (before taxes) windfall.

When she got caught, she said “I feel that it’s okay because I mean, I have no income and I have bills to pay…I have two houses.” (source)
