Remember Rachel Dolezal?
She’s the white woman who pretended to be black in order to establish a career at the NAACP.
Some of those interviews she gave were just mind boggling.
Well, Rachel just found herself in a little bit of trouble.
Looks like she wasn’t just lying to herself the last few years but she was also lying to the government.
From The Daily Caller:
Former Spokane NAACP President Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who was pretending to be black under the name Nkechi Diallo, was arrested on multiple charges relating to welfare fraud on Monday.
She pled guilty to state charges of first-degree theft by welfare fraud, making false verification and second-degree perjury last month.
Diallo, who legally changed her in 2016, is facing up to 15 years in prison.
She has been accused of accepting $8,800 in food and childcare assistance illegally between August 2015 and November 2017, according to Fox News.
15 years in jail? Not ideal.
From Fox News:
Former Spokane NAACP President Nkechi Diallo — who became infamous as Rachel Dolezal, a white woman identifying as black — was booked and fingerprinted at a Washington state jail Monday as she awaits trial on multiple charges, including welfare fraud.
Diallo pleaded not guilty to state charges of first-degree theft by welfare fraud, making false verification and second-degree perjury last month. A judge ordered her freed on her own recognizance and gave her a deadline of Monday evening to report to the Spokane County jail for booking and fingerprinting.
The welfare fraud case started in March 2017 after a state investigator received information that Diallo had written a book –her autobiography, “In Full Color.” The investigator reviewed Diallo’s records and found that she had been reporting her income as usually less than $500 per month, court documents said.
However, a subpoena of her bank statements and other records showed Diallo had deposited nearly $84,000 into her account from 2015-17, without reporting most of it to the state Department of Social and Health Services.
The money came from book sales, speaking engagements, soap making, doll making and the sale of her art, according to the case file.
Clearly, Dolezal has trouble telling the truth.
