Former NAACP President Charged With Welfare Fraud

The former NAACP chapter president formerly known as Rachel Dolezal has been criminally charged.

Spokane, WA – The white woman who pretended to be black and was the NAACP Spokane Chapter President has been arrested for welfare fraud.

Dolezal legally changed her name to Nkechi Diallo in 2016, according to KHQ-TV.

The state says that Diallo failed to report $80,000 she made for a book she wrote on her experiences while she continued to collect public assistance.

Diallo has been charged with 1st Degree Theft by Welfare Fraud, Perjury in the 2nd Degree and False Verification for Public Assistance. She faces up to 15 years in prison, according to KHQ.

Diallo illegally received $8,747 in food assistance and $100 in childcare assistance from August 2015 through November 2017, according to court documents.

The investigation into the alleged fraud began in March 2017 when a state investigator received a tip that Diallo had written a book that was published.

The investigator said he knew a typical publishing contract was around $20,000.

Diallo had claimed that her income was less than $500 per month in child support payments.

When asked how she was paying her bills, she allegedly told the state, “Barely! With help from friends and gifts.”

However, the state put in a subpoena to get her bank statements which showed that she had deposited $83,924 into her bank account in monthly installments between August 2015 and September 2017.

She did not report that income to the Department of Social and Health Services.

The money came from her book, “In Full Color,” speaking engagements, and her sale of art as well as soap making and doll making, according to state documents.

While being investigated, Diallo reported a “change of circumstance” to the state and said a one-time job got her $20,000 in October of 2017.

Diallo denied that there were discrepancies in her income reporting. When pressed further, she then told the investigator she didn’t have to answer any more questions.

The state of Washington is seeking restitution as well as prosecution on the case.

The Department of Social and Health Services has also requested that Diallo be disqualified from receiving food assistance for at least a 12-month period for purposely violating the rules.

While Diallo was known as Rachel Dolezal, she made the news when her parents publicly called her out for being white. She had previously told people that her father was black and that he fled the deep south "because a white cop was hunting him," according to Daily Mail.

Prior to her parents speaking out, she was an NAACP chapter president, chair of police ombudsman commission, and an instructor in the Africana Studies program at Eastern Washington University.

Dolezal displays a shameless entitlement mentality. Maybe she really is black after all.

I wonder if ShelbyAhole will come to her defense? After all, this woman identifies as being black. Doesn't that make it so?

Another entitled person that got caught ripping the Government off! Instead of 12 months she needs to loose her benefits forever.

This woman has hurt her children so much with all her nonsense. I saw a documentary on her and all her double talk is just ridiculous. Her middle child would prefer to hide under a rock than listen to all the self- inflicted public shaming of his mother. Now back in the limelight will cause him more pain. So sad

Yeah. This has little nothing to with policing. This isn't a "blue lives matter" issue. But I'm sure the white supremacists on this site love this.

@Marxest Why would a white supremacist care about a white woman getting arrested for welfare fraud?

@LEO0301 because dumbfucks like @John.Brown like to supplant all black folk with someone like Rachel Dolezal. It's great for the white supremacist narrative.

Marxest...There's nothing White Supremacist about me...and I care very much when I pay taxes to support people who actually need help and see someone like this woman taking advantage of the system. It''s disgusting. I'm sure you've justified your belief, somehow, in your own brain...but please understand, name calling and accusations like yours are beyond the pale and aren't really worth the time it takes to read your comment. If she was arrested, it's very much "policing".

Hi_estComnDenomn

@SoberProgressive 'own' her? your language is telling.

and no. her actions and thought process on how she came to invent 'trans-racial' are definitely white actions and thought processes.

lol I love when you call him Cheech. Hey Cheech please make this photo of Cheech your Avatar here!

@Det_John_Kimble Actually i enjoy being called Cheech. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong were trailblazers (and weed blazers) that helped make it possible to enjoy marijuana legally because I'm a goddamn adult. Plus they're both really nice guys.

But i won't make him my avatar. Only fuckboys use celebrity likenesses as their avatars. You know, like 80s/90s action stars that went on to govern the state of California.

@Hi_estComnDenomn - you must not remember asking me not to call you "Cheech". If you enjoy it so much why did you ask me to stop? Unless it's another attempt to spin a comment in you favor. Sad.

Hi_estComnDenomn

@LEO0301 I don't recall that, but if i did, i did. At this point it's better for me that you continue to refer to me as Cheech. It's grown on me.
