    Where's her picture WRAL?

    You post everyone else's photo even when they haven't pleaded guilty - why not her picture?

    And the poor lil people your referring to obviously aren’t abusing the system if they need it great I’m glad its there for them, I was referring to people that ABUSE the system (people that don’t need it, just get it because they can)

    Nope not judging anybody just responding to your comment about stealing money from the government, but that must be okay in your book for people to abuse our system. I made a general statement you responded on an individual person you don’t know anything about. Have a nice day

    What about all the people abusing our welfare system, which I have to work everyday to pay for other people to sit at home? Everyone has his or her own option and its freedom of speech so I said what I wanted to say.

    diane, there is "making a mistake" then there is deliberately stealing taxpayers money....give me a break already!!

    I’m glad you guys have never sinned and can throw the first stone. Me on the other hand I’m not perfect and I am no one to JUDGE. Everyone makes mistakes I hope she can make this right for her family and everyone else involved. So anyone who has never made a mistake I’m happy for you.

    I doubt seriously it was worth the career you will never have now! Your employment options are non-existent now! You only thought you were broke before.
