For years, Rachel Dolezal led a secret life in the Pacific Northwest. Her friends believed she was a black woman with a passion for African-American issues. Others saw her as a vocal civil rights leader who later became the local N.A.A.C.P. president in Spokane, Wash.

She was also a liar, her parents said. Estranged from their daughter, her parents came forward in June 2015 to out her as a white woman who had carried on a giant ruse, exposing her in what quickly morphed from a local story into an international sensation.

Two months later, the authorities claimed in court documents this week, she started another scheme.

From August 2015 until last November, Ms. Dolezal received nearly $8,850 in public assistance from Washington State after she had falsely claimed she had little income and needed financial help, according to court documents. Prosecutors charged Ms. Dolezal, 40, who legally changed her name in 2016 to Nkechi Amare Diallo, with theft by welfare fraud, perjury and falsifying records for public assistance — all felonies.

During the more than two years she received public aid, Ms. Dolezal reported a single source of income: $300 per month in gifts from friends. But investigators with the state’s Department of Social and Health Services found that she had deposited nearly $84,000 into her bank account during that same period, according to court documents.

She was “advised on numerous occasions she could be criminally prosecuted if she willfully provided false information or failed to accurately report her circumstances,” the department’s investigators wrote in court records.

After investigators started to question Ms. Dolezal, she reported a “change of circumstance” to the state agency in November 2017, saying she completed a job the previous month for $20,000, according to court documents. She told them she had “fully disclosed her information.”

Bull-fucking-shit, you need to stop listening to those voices in your head.
This is the perfect example of a redneck White Nationalist that denies Blacks of their inherited rights due to slavery. You will comply when we march on your capitol with a one million strong civilian army, you bigot. A thousand times more lashes for haters like you that call others such bigoted and racist terms such as "boy".

She's an idiot, but how interesting that she's guilty of $8700 in welfare fraud and faces up to 15 years in prison...yet the white collar criminals that destroy people's lives with their fraud/extortion of billions of dollars usually get 5 years or less.

Apparently, the focus of the issue was too much for you to defend.

Or like the execs of the banks that caused the meltdown, multimillion dollar bonuses?
