An Ohio strip club has lost it’s liquor license after they were busted for selling drugs and lap dances for food stamps. Now that they cannot take food stamps, how many steaks do you need to pay for a lap dance? Sharky’s Lounge in Harrison Township and several of their employees have been busted for food stamp fraud. Although you technically do eat drugs, it apparently is considered prepared food. I recently stopped snorting coke myself. The bubbles hurt my nose. My seven year old neighbor was put in rehab. He was hooked on phonics.
Throughout the five-month investigation, undercover agents reportedly exchanged $2,404.87 in food stamp benefits with employees of the adult entertainment club for the illegal drugs, WHIO reported.
Authorities charged the employees and patrons involved with drug and food stamp trafficking, illegal sexual activity, aggravated shipment and distribution of heroin, and taking part in corrupt activity.
Thousands of retailers throughout the U.S. have been caught trafficking food stamp benefits and have suffered consequences as a result.
A U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) report found that more than 35,000 U.S. retailers trafficked an excess of $1 billion in food stamp benefits a year during a period of three years, and a second report from the agency indicated that 1,845 retailers participating in the food stamp program had been permanently disqualified from the program in that year.
It seems like ever since President Trump got into office, there are more and more food stamp fraud rings busted. This program is costly and it seems like it is riddled with fraud since recipients can usually sell their benefits for 50 cents on the dollar. They then can buy drugs while their kids go hungry.
