People love stories about someone winning the lottery and then giving the money away. They’re less likely to feel fondly about Amanda Clayton, who won $1 million in the Michigan State Lottery but is still collecting food stamps.

“I thought that they would cut me off, but since they didn’t, I thought maybe it was OK because I’m not working,” Clayton, 24, told Local 4 news in Detroit.

Back in December, a woman in Washington State fell under scrutiny when it was revealed she was receiving state economic benefits even though she lives in a $1 million waterfront home on Lake Washington.

Clayton, who says she owns two homes and a new car, receives $200 a month in food assistance from the state-issued Michigan Bridge Card, which is meant to benefit lower-income residents in the nation’s eigth most economically depressed state.

    In other words, I knew it wasn’t right but I kept taking it anyway. NO HONOR. There you go. Americans, as a people, have lost their honor. We’ve stopped doing what’s right, because it’s right. Now we do whatever we can get away with. Then when we get caught, we blame others. Despicable.

    This is socialism. A woman here gaoled this week, she claimed child benefit for 10 fictitious children. Her two real children, well she claimed disability allowances for them. They are of course able bodied.

    Oh and she was not beige 🙂
