1. It is possible that this woman couldn't read the application.
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 07:27 AM by Stuart G
Many people have difficulty reading. So, I read in another story, that it was an 18 page application. Caused her to crack.

from the above link at msnbc:

The woman, identified as Rachelle Grimmer, 38, first applied for food stamps in July but was denied because she didn't turn in enough information, Texas Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman Stephanie Goodman told The Associated Press Tuesday.

Goodman told the AP she didn't know what documentation Grimmer specifically failed to provide. In addition to completing an 18-page application, families seeking state benefits also must provide proof of employment and residency.


There are many American born citizens who have difficulty reading. They just slip through the cracks ..
.. I have toutored some in the Chicago Area. They are extremely embarrased and have much shame about it. Could have caused her to crack, and then not being able to feed her kids..Texas sucks. Texas really made it easy on her..
