Or even people who don’t have a handicap using a handicap parking pass. As a hard working member of your community it is hard to watch others try and game the system while you follow the rules. Well, this next story tops the charts when it comes to taking advantage of the system. A Michigan woman who recently won a $1 million lottery prize still collected welfare payments for food and medical assistance. It looks like this woman will avoid jail time, but in the end, even though she is a lottery winner, she comes off looking like a loser. Read the original article below.
