And when she get out, she will be livin da life!

'A city welfare worker faces up to 6-1/2 years in the slammer after pleading guilty today to cooking up a $7 million food-stamp scam.
Vanee Sykes, 44, admitted pulling off the massive fraud with the help of three cronies, two of whom formerly worked with her at the Human Resources Administration.

Sykes, of Brooklyn, said she created phantom poor people using fake names and Social Security numbers, then had their food-stamp cards mailed to addresses where she and her accomplices could collect them.

"We then sold some of the cards and shared the proceeds," Sykes said in Manhattan federal court.'

Well, speaking as a liberal, that woman pisses the hell out of me. Criminals like that just make it that much harder for truely deserving families to get help. I am amazed they are letting her get away with paying no fines. She'll probably be back on the streets in a year for "good behavior."

I wonder if she still gets her pension and retiree benefits?

Those things are a gold mine for NY's public employees.
