  •  Correct me if I'm wrong (3+ / 0-)

    But lottery payments (for the big jackpots at least) come from the state's lottery dept. And SNAP goes through states. So I'd think the chances of being caught trying to get paid by both would have to be near 100%. They might be a little slow on the uptake but you can't successfully pull off a scam like that.

    •  I agree, except in many governments, (0+ / 0-)

      the departments are quite isolated from one another. That's how a lot of the redundancy in government comes to be.
      Also, you don't have to be the least bit intelligent to win the lottery. Stupid people can win too. It's possible the winner I saw who still got food stamps was too stupid to make the connection. Possible, but not probable.
