Great police work and great sentencing. I'm especially impressed that the EBRPD would go to such lengths.

Why not check to see if she is also one who claims bogus gov assistance? Are her kids on the free breakfast lunch and dinner program? Does she use one of the alternative tax ID numbers to claim $1000 per kid (never needing verification) from the Feds? Congressman Mcnerney is aware of all the fraud but does NoTHING!!!

Mcnerney needs to be ousted. And Buchanan who is in the crotch of the CTA. Voted to protect abusing teachers.

This news item and thread are about ID theft, not welfare fraud, teachers, Jerry McNerny or Joan Buchanan. Richard and Lynn, do you know the difference?

Someone who would enjoy doing ID theft would probably scam the other welfare freebie gimme da goods gov programs. I would add---see if she is ILLEGAL and throw her out after her sentence. Days of coddling trash are ending.

I say Richard was pointing out MCNerney KNOWS about scammers and does nothing to help build the dem voting block........I went to his community gathering and saw how his handlers blocked any people who disagreed with his policies. He needs to go ASAP
