Meta: ‘Obama Express’ Store Owner Charged with $2 Million Food Stamp Fraud

What a, uh, surprise:

A federal grand jury indicted 10 Baltimore business owners or operators on charges of stealing nearly $7 million from food assistance programs by agreeing to debit cash for beneficiaries without selling food — then keeping a cut of the proceeds.

The owner of a corner grocery in West Baltimore called “Second Obama Express” is accused of obtaining more than $2 million in payments for food sales that never occurred, a practice that authorities call “food stamp trafficking.” Eight others are accused of taking between $348,000 and $1.4 million.

The store owner will probably now be forced to go into the “green energy” business and start a company called “Obamalyndra.”
