Liberals want us all to believe welfare fraud is not running rampant in America. They are wrong and this egregious case of abuse proves it!
Helen Agbapuruonwu, a 41-year-old Arlington woman, allegedly collected more than $100,000 in taxpayer-funded welfare benefits. She cashed her monthly checks while her husband was making millions of dollars as a Washington, D.C. attorney!
Fidelis Agbapuruonwu, her husband, was earning $1.5 million per year from his law practice, NBC reports. In 2001, the prominent attorney was even awarded the distinguished Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship award.
The award helped put the welfare cheat through law school. The scholarship is awarded by George Soros’ foundation.
Police officers spent six months investigating Helen Agbapuruonwu, a mother of four. They found she had been collecting Medicaid and food stamps for the past SIX YEARS!
According to his social media accounts, the husband, Fidelis, works for the Mayer Brown law firm. The firm told local reporters the welfare cheat is no longer on staff.
Mayer Brown is a highly successful international law firm. To reach this pinnacle, Fidelis went to the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.
He is a Nigerian immigrant. Reportedly, after the fraud investigation began, Fidelis fled the United States and is somewhere in Africa.
Helen Agbapuruonwu’s defense attorney has refused to comment at all on the felony welfare fraud case. If Helen knows where her husband is, she is not talking. Arlington County Police spokeswoman Ashley Savage, said, “We hope it sends a message that if you are taking public assistance it’s truly intended for those in need, and we’re committed to ensuring those who need the most help receive it.”
The welfare fraud case highlights just how easy it is to cheat the system. American taxpayers work hard for their money and should not be forced to give it to millionaires due to negligence by welfare agency workers!
If the government workers had bothered to do their jobs, at least a little bit, they would have learned the true income of the immigrant family. When the married woman jotted down on the form her husband was an attorney, even the most clueless and lazy government worker should have thought something was amiss!
