Speaking of welfare

Los Angeles (CNN) — Octuplets mom Nadya Suleman faces welfare fraud charges as she's accused of not reporting money earned as a topless dancer and adult film actress.

“While applying for public aid, the mother of 14 children allegedly failed to disclose that she was also getting checks for personal appearances and residuals from videos,” said a news release from Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey on Monday.

Suleman — known in tabloids as “Octomom” — has not been arrested, but she has been ordered to appear before a Los Angeles County judge for her initial arraignment Friday, according to the district attorney's office. The prosecutor will ask the judge to set a $25,000 bond, the release said. Full story.
