waste -- American taxpayer dollars are ending up in unexpected
places, TheDC's Caroline May reports:
"An investigation into where welfare recipients are using their
Electronic Benefit Transfer cards has revealed that some are
withdrawing taxpayer money from EBT-friendly ATMs at strip clubs and
liquor stores. The New York Post, looking at a database of 200
million EBT records from January 2011 to July 2012 obtained through a
Freedom of Information request, discovered that some people receiving
government benefits have been using their EBT cards to withdraw cash
at several questionable New York establishments: Hank's Saloon, a
porn shop called Blue Door Video, the Patriot Saloon, the Club Eleven
strip club, the Club Heat strip joint and Drinks Galore."
