MA Lawmaker: Food Stamp Cards Being Sold For Drug Money

A district judge has struck down a Florida law requiring drug testing for welfare benefits.

benefits card“There is no set of circumstances which the warrantless, suspicion less drug testing at issue in this case could be constitutionally applied,” U.S. District Judge Mary Scriven said in her ruling.

State Rep. Shaunna O’Connell (R) says Americans are selling their EBT cards for drug money. She says oversight of the food stamp program has become lax through the years.

Food stamp enrollment has nearly doubled in the last five years. In 2008, about 28.2 million people were enrolled in the food stamp program. In 2013, that number jumped to 47.6 million.  fed-food-stamp

O’Connell says the verification process needs to be stricter, adding that people are having an easier time gaming the system online to obtain multiple EBT cards.

‘Fast & Furious’ Gun Found After Deadly Mexican Resort Shootout

Yet another Fast and Furious weapon was recovered in Mexico. This time, the gun was found after a shootout between Mexican authorities and drug cartel members in the popular resort town of Puerto Penasco.
Five cartel gunmen were killed in the battle last month, and the sounds were captured in an amateur video posted on YouTube.

ATF, which was blamed for the botched gun operation, released the following statement:

“ATF has accepted responsibility for the mistakes made in the Fast and Furious investigation and at the attorney general’s direction we have taken appropriate and decisive action to ensure that these errors will not be atf badgerepeated. And we acknowledge that, regrettably, firearms related to the Fast and Furious investigation will likely continue to be recovered at future crime scenes.”

Katie Pavlich reacted to the situation on Fox and Friends this morning, arguing that ATF has a very “loose” definition of what it means to take responsibility.

She said even Eric Holder admits that we’re going to see more murders be linked to Fast and Furious weapons, with some 1,400 of them still out there.

Watch the full discussion above, including an update on where the legal battle stands on Capitol Hill as Republicans demand more documents be made public by the Obama administration.
