$2 Million Lottery Winner Still On Food Stamps

Leroy Fick 59, won $2 million in the Michigan lottery but despite telling food stamp officials that he won $2 million in the lottery, was told to keep using his food stamp card.

It is a mystery why he continues to use his food stamp card, since there is no way someone with $2 million would need food stamps.

It is almost a certainty that the law will be changed, but it should have been changed long before it got to this point.

Too many hardworking taxpayers are paying taxes to fund the food stamp program and they won’t be happy to learn about this waste of state money.

This man is rich enough to buy the grocery store, yet continues to draw from the public trough and is having his cake and eating it too.

It will be interesting to see how much longer this millionaire continues to buy his groceries with food stamps.
