        DETROIT - Viagra and pornography are not staples on the government's food stamp list. But authorities say a Detroit liquor store supplied them during a series of illegal deals.

        Federal prosecutors filed fraud charges this week against three people who worked at Jefferson's Liquor Palace.

        The alleged scheme worked this way: Food stamp recipients would get cash from the store in exchange for swiping larger amounts off their electronic cards. The store would then be reimbursed by the U.S. Agriculture Department.

        And in some transactions, the government says the store provided informants Viagra, liquor and porn in exchange for swiping about $2,000 off food stamp cards.

        The government says fraud at the store topped $130,000 over 2 1/2 years. The store is closed.

        WOW!!!!!!

        As someone who DISLIKES greatly too much government, I feel it should hand out free Viagra   After all, the government gives out free food, cell phones, subsidized rent, mortage assistance, free medical care, $billions to all sorts of companies,etc.  What is wrong with tossing around a few free Viagra pills????

        Reminds me when I was in MO, was behind a lady in the market and her EBT card was rejected. Then she found out she only had like $10 on it and her food bill was $125+

        Live in BF then opened his wallet and paid it.

        I get so aggravated at this kind of doings, but Foodstamp doesn't care...sheesh!!

        I don't get it Gene...what doings gets you so aggrevated?

        The foodstamp people? or her?  Does this happen a lot?

        In my area, foodstamps get issued twice a month, and people depend on this.  Do you think
        perhaps it may have been because of the holiday or something?  Sometimes things like this happen, and the deposits don't go in automatically.  Maybe she just didn't know.  I don't know.  Generally I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but maybe it happens a lot where you are from...does it?  because if it is..that definately isn't cool.

        Nal, you missed the point "Live in Boyfriend" footed the bill. In other words HE should pay for it and not the state. He's getting food he should be paying for (and the rest of that family) instead of taking money not rightfully theirs.

        OK, no probs..Lord if there was a number I could call, but then again, they'd not touch it.

        I mean I can REALLY feel for a female with 3 kids (Hopefully all the one father) and they've fallen on hard times Heck I'd be there to help.

        But it's abuse like this that would make me grind my teeth if I had any

        The kids and I do a good amount of volunteering to help the poor and homeless.  I can SURE see the need of foodstamps as a social safety net, but I have also seen families "hooked" on them too.  Perhaps there is a better way to get food and basics to the poor.
