Looks like yet another government "worker" has been indicted and arrested for criminal activity.

This one is a Tennessee Department of Human Services Eligibility Counselor who is/was a Food Stamp eligibility authority.

Apparently he was "eligibilizing" women return for ..... wait for it ....

Sex !!!

The lawsuits will be lucrative I imagine. Another big government failure.



Government worker indicted for trading food stamps for WHAT?!!


Tennessee state officials announced Thursday that they arrested state Department of Human Services Eligibility Counselor Alfred Awonuga for allegedly handing out food stamps in exchange for sexual favors.

In his role, Awonuga was responsible for deciding if a person was eligible for food stamps. An investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) found he used his authority to coercive individuals into having sex with him. This included some women not otherwise eligible to receive benefits.

“Awonuga used his position to attempt to get a participant in the state’s food assistance program to have sex with him in exchange for benefits,” a press release from TBI detailed. “Agents further learned Awonuga manipulated the program in a separate incident by obtaining benefits for an applicant who would otherwise not be eligible in an attempt to get the participant to have sex with him.”

How many more examples do we need to show that our government is corrupt to its core and needs to be reset with people that have morals and values instead of a bunch of scumbags that abuse the people that they claim to represent.?

Ya only in 'big gov' do those with power abuse it...

This is an example of the failure of this one person to be a decent human being and not extort people in need. But ya giggle away about it.

So will any of the women that shouldn't have qualified be arrested for bribery or prostitution?
My guess is no...ha

Typical, repeat the same nonsense with some emoticons.

One person does not equal huge gov failure.
It equals huge failure of that one person.

It's a government failure that he was in his position for long enough to abuse it for sex on at least two occasions.



Make it ... Your mama sure does care whether or not you get to eat son.

Let's look at this from another point of view...

Instead of "the big government" let's substitute Subway, the sandwich people. Instead of this guy, let's substitute Jared. Jared may be employed by Subway and used his position to have his way with women, but in no way is Subway the culprit.

How 'bout all the crooked sheriff's deputies? How 'bout all the postal workers who steal mail?

This thing happens every day and we are typically none the wiser. Mention welfare, now that's shareable on social media to further an agenda.

Unless the problem has gone on a long time and is widespread throughout the system.

You just made my case. Corruption is widespread. You said so yourself.

The first clue should have been the Barry White being played over the loudspeakers at the food stamp office.

Just sayin'. . . .

Amusing story. And just to add. . . . . "Thanks alot, Obama!"

Publically as well and especially privately.
I won't argue with you that people do really crappy things, especially if they have a small taste of authoritah.

It happens. Just because this is welfare related it seems to draw the crowd.
Corruption is everywhere. Everyone is corrupt to the extent that they feel they will not get caught. Myself included. The degree to which we push that corruption is another matter. That is where morality and self-control come into play...some people have it, others lack it.
