Ms. Dolezal was head of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People until June 2015, when she resigned in wake of her parents telling local media she is white but passing as black.

An investigator at the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) Fraud office heard that Diallo had recently published a book 'In Full Color, ' in a deal reportedly worth between $10,000 to $20,000.

Yep. She was getting welfare.

Rachel Dolezal, a woman who came to notoriety for claiming and arguing that she was born African American when her parents revealed she was actually white, is facing an extremely serious charge that may carry a 15-year sentence if convicted.

Just another reason she's one of those celebs we just wish we'd never heard of...

DOJ Says Watchdog Will Look Into Trump Campaign Surveillance
What is the informant's connection to Mueller? So far, the Mueller team has indicted a total of 22 people and companies. Nunes said he and Gowdy canceled the meeting after they were informed that DoJ had decided not to provide the documents.

At this time, Dolezal had been reporting a monthly income of less than $500, which came from child support payments.

Court documents say she illegally received $8,747 in food assistance and $100 in child care assistance from August 2015 through November 2017. Dolezal, who now goes by Nkechi Diallo after a legal name change in 2016, is charged with first-degree theft by welfare fraud, second-degree perjury, and false verification for public assistance after receiving thousands of dollars in food and childcare assistance.

A subpoena for her self-employment records, which included copies of her bank statements, showed Diallo had deposited almost $84,000 into her bank account between August 2015 and September 2017, without reporting it to the Department of Social and Health Services.

Documents show Dolezal was made aware that she would be criminally prosecuted if she "willfully" made a false statement or failed to report things. But the DSHS report says Dolezal told investigators in April that she had "fully disclosed her information" and declined to answer further questions. "This is known as an Intentional Program Violation", court documents read as cited by KHQ-TV.
