Food Share fraud crackdown


by Keith Meka

MILWAUKEE - State officials are hoping to start cracking down on people who fraudulently use the Food Share Program for low income residents.  People who sell their food stamps for cash, drugs, weapons or anything else face up to 10 years behind bars and up to 25-thousand dollars in fines. Just last month the Federal Government gave Wisconsin the go ahead to crack down on offenders. Some say people sell their food stamps only to buy other household necessities. State Senator Alberta Darling of River Hills co-authored the legislation. It could become law sometime in June.
