Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. "Octomom," is currently under investigation for welfare fraud, on a tip that the mother of 14 has been illegally collecting thousands of dollars in government aid, TMZ reports. According to a search warrant, officials are taking steps to seize Suleman's financial records from her manager's home and office.There are many things wrong here. I am surprised that a single mom can earn up to $119k and still collect welfare?
Per TMZ, Suleman and her 14 children are eligible for welfare benefits if she earns less than $119,000 in a calendar year. However, officials at the L.A. County Department of Welfare Fraud Prevention and Investigation reportedly received a tip that she grossed more than $200,000 in 2012 -- and still collected public-assistance money from the government.
If the tip turns out to be true, Suleman could face up to three years of prison time.
She has no husband and no real job. I think that she earned the money by cashing in on her celebrity status to make porno videos.
The Octomom is a parasite. Besides collecting tens of thousands in welfare, she someone got free medical treatment for her test-tube babies, some of whom are disabled.
Now if she is put in jail, she will cost us hundreds of thousands more in prison expenses, and in foster care for her 14 kids.
I mentioned her 4 years ago, and there seems to be no end to the drama. At what point are we going to learn to stop subsidizing irresponsible single moms?
Meanwhile, here is the male equivalent:
A man with 22 kids from 14 women is being sued for unpaid child support, reported the Huffington Post on June 7. Orlando Shaw, 33, says he considers himself a good father, but says he can't afford to pay child support.Note how it is all about money.
Shaw says, “You can't knock no man for loving women,” and he says any time any of the women ask for anything, he runs to give it. It seems the 14 women of the 22 kids, however, would argue that is not the case since he is being sued for tens of thousands of dollars over unpaid child support.
The 33-year-old Shaw admitted to fathering 22 kids by 14 different women. Those mothers -through Child Support Services - took Shaw to court for tens of thousands of dollars in unpaid child support over the years.Adam Corolla says he is "the world's worst father, and possibly human being." Bill O'Reilly says, "I think Orlando should go to jail for 10 years. That is only 6 months for each child. ... He is a menace, a danger. ... Let's put him away for 10 years for child abuse." Both quotes from Fox News TV O'Reilly Factor last night.
It is estimated the state pays more than $7,000 each month in assistance to help support all of Shaw's children.
Wow, there is some venom. There is no law against having kids that you cannot support. The taxpayers are supporting the single moms with thousands of dollars every month.
It used to be that child support was a civil matter and the government only took an interest if the child was on public assistance in order to be reimbursed if possible. But after welfare reform in 1996, local child support agencies were authorized to take anyone's case at any time. And even if an obligor agreed to the amount of support and is willing to pay faithfully, the local child support agency will garnishee his or her wages, imposing an unnecessary burden on the employer.
The focus of wrongdoing seems to always be on Shaw rather than asking why the women he is with choose to have a sexual relationship with and bear the children of a man who has had children with 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11/12/13 other women when they are not in the financial position to raise those children. It seems they made life choices to deliberately put themselves in the situation where they are reliant on state support.
Maybe they didn't know and maybe I'm old fashioned for thinking that before choosing to have unprotected sex and choosing not to take the morning after pill and choosing not to have an abortion and choosing to have his children, they would have met his family/friends/social circle/people who would know about his previous relationships and his existing children and spent a lot of time with him and would have had his history revealed to them.
Like the women Shaw had children with, Octomom financial situation is by her own design.
If there wasn't a benefits safety net for people like this, they would be recklessly endangering their own children.
Is it wrong that I find Octomom's shirt incredibly ironic?
