A Seattle woman who is receiving welfare assistance from Washington state also happens to live in a waterfront house on Lake Washington worth more than a million dollars.

Federal agents raided the home this weekend but have not released the woman or her husband's name because they have not officially been charged with a crime.

However, federal documents obtained by KING 5 News show the couple currently receives more than $1,200 a month in public housing vouchers, plus state and government disability checks and food stamps. They have been receiving the benefits since 2003.

The 2,500 square-foot home, which includes gardens and a boat dock, is valued at $1.2 million. And even though the couple has been receiving the benefits for nearly 10 years, records show that they accurately listed the address of their current home when applying for the state and federal benefits.

A federal official told KING 5 that the couple likely took advantage of a loophole, which allows low-income individuals to receive financial assistance to help them pay their rent and move away from housing projects. However, the law does not require officials to verify what type of home the benefits recipient is living in.

As if the million dollar home weren't enough, the supposedly low-income couple also gave money to various charities and traveled around the world to locales in Turkey, Tel Aviv and resort towns in Mexico, according to court records.

thats basically the attitude of most people on this site yes. they haven't figured out that the justice system is corrupt and usually doesn't work and they could be the ones that get fucked by the long spiky arm of the law.

that being said, if this bitch is guilty then fuck her.

No. It's not like they did it for no reason. it's not like they won't at some point in the near future be charged with crimes. Fuck em. They deserve what they've gotten and what they get.

yeah i shouldn't have said most, but i've definitely read a lot of posts on here where people seem to think that the way the government and law treat criminals is never going to affect them.

people need to wake up and smell the police state.
