Prison for wealthy Seattle couple who took welfare
(AP) SEATTLE - A Seattle couple who collected welfare while living in a $1.2 million waterfront home are headed to prison.
A federal judge sentenced chiropractor David Silverstein and his longtime partner, Lyudmila Shimonova, to 18 months in prison Friday. Silverstein also must pay a criminal fine of $30,000, even though he's already paid $334,000 in restitution and civil penalties.
Shimonova was ordered to pay $261,000 in restitution.

I can't find, as of yet, that this is a bogus story. If a "wealthy" couple can do it, government entitlement programs can't possibly be out of control. The great American vote buy. I'd love to see an official break down of this "47%" that supposedly doesn't exist.
