State Aid Rip Off's Need Oversight

Republican Alberta Darling wants stronger enforcement, after a Milwaukee newspaper found that the state is not checking actual incomes of aid recipients who are self employed, or who claim they’re broke.

District Attorney, Tim Gruenke says they do deal with public aid fraud cases from time to time but nothing to the extent of some that rip the state off for hundreds of thousand of dollars.
