White couple gets $176,000 in welfare benefits, lived on $1.2 million yacht

Colin and Andrea Chisholm

Colin and Andrea Chisholm

Colin and Andrea Chisholm are a white Florida couple who live in a mobile home and collect welfare benefits.

The only problem with this scenario is that the mobile home is a $1.2 million yacht and the benefits collected tally $176,000.

The couple has been fraudulently receiving welfare benefits from Minnesota to Florida and living a life of nobility. In fact, according to authorities, they demanded to be called “Lord and Lady Chisholm,” raised fancy dogs, and used more than $60,000 in public assistance money on massages. The Chisholms are facing 20 years in prison, but may have fled the United States.

    Where are all the comments now? If this had been a black couple all the racist comments would have been flowing like a raging river…#ijs

      Exactly.. let’s see if they post this on Yahoo (where all the racists hang out) then we’ll see what they have to say about this one. I can’t wait.. Meanwhile, Blacks are not the majority of welfare recipients anyway, but the conservatives and the media have done an awesome job making it appear that way.

      there are not going to be many racist posts on this site because majority of black people are not racist. and i don’t think any of us would stoop that low just to prove a point. no matter what the “other” race may think of black people, black people are better than that.

    THIS is very racists the color of anyones skin shouldnt be used at ALL We are all HUMAN its sites like this that just keep racism alive and thriving. How about the headline >>>A COUPLE get $176,000 in welfare <<<<< there is no reason to use the color of their skin be it,white black brown green what ever, but to make it racist.

      if you listen carefully to the news, it does separate by color. when a white man commits a crime, it states a man, then list the physical description.but when its someone black it blatantly states, black male then proceeds with a discription. im sure you will pay attention in the future.

    This is a hot mess, and how did they let them get away with this for so long. That’s why the government need to put their feet down on the people that collect welfare, and do random pop ups and drug test. Whatever state they live in, I feel sorry for the tax payers, and the people that really need the assistance!

    So how’s the 1% going to justify this?

    when i read this post, i wasn’t mad at them. they found a way to cheat the system, as the system cheats those in need. its not the couples fault the department didn’t do their job correctly. black, white, hispanic, i don’t care what the race was/is. the sad part about it is whatever country they run to now they may actually have to do hard work or minimum wage. lol lol we all know their bank accounts have been frozen by now.
