Welfare Money Being Used to Post Bail?

Welfare cash may have been used to get a Massachusetts drug dealer “out of jail free.”

The Boston Herald reports:

Kimball Clark, 45, was locked up Friday on drug-dealing charges—again—when he was overheard using his one phone call to ask the person on the other end of the line to “get my EBT [Electronic Benefit Transfer] card and go to the ATM and get the money to bail me out, get me outa here tonight,”’ according to a Boston police report.

The EBT system provides benefits—including food stamps and cash assistance—through a plastic debit card.
