Former Spokane NAACP Chapter Leader Rachel Dolezal Accused Of Welfare Fraud

Rachel Dolezal has reportedly been charged with welfare fraud

Authorities who are charging Dolezal with welfare fraud say the controversial personality illegally received $8,747 in food assistance and $100 in child care assistance from August 2015 through November 2017. Dolezal's name is back in the news once again though, as she is being charged with welfare fraud.

Rachel Dolezal was pressured to resign from the NAACP in February 2017 after it was discovered she was white but had been identifying herself as African American while leading the civil rights group. That didn't match up with the income she reported: just $500 per month in child support. "With help from friends and gifts".

A subpoena for her self-employment records, which included copies of her bank statements, showed Diallo had deposited almost $84,000 into her bank account between August 2015 and September 2017, without reporting it to the Department of Social and Health Services.

According to the case file, the money came from her memoir, "In Full Color", as well as speaking engagements, soap making, doll making, and the sale of her art.

Diallo did report a "change of circumstance" to the state agency, saying she did a one-time job in October 2017 worth $20,000, court documents said.

Donald Glover told Jimmy Kimmel why he wanted to play Lando Calrissian in " Solo ". I don't know where it will go ". This thing is literally a blob.

Then, Dolezal reportedly told the investigator that "she did not have to answer", cutting the interview short.

She was outed as pretending to be African American after her carefully constructed image was shattered during an interview in 2015 when she was asked a single question: "Are you an African American?"

Dolezal's life is the subject of the documentary "The Rachel Divide" now streaming on Netflix. According to a statement from Netflix, she was not paid for the project. The beleaguered activist has now been accused of committing welfare fraud when she applied for public assistance past year, according to the Hill.

She said in 2017 that while she might be "Caucasian biologically" she nevertheless "had an authentic black identity". "This is known as an Intentional Program Violation", court documents read as cited by KHQ-TV.
