Rachel Dolezal, who legally changed her name to Nkechi Diallo in 2016, was hit this week with a handful of charges, including 1st Degree Theft by Welfare Fraud, Perjury in the 2nd Degree, and False Verification for Public Assistance, according to KHQ-TV.
Court documents suggest that Dolezal illegally received $8,747 in food assistance and $100 in childcare assistance from August 2015 through November 2017.
The investigation began last March, fresh off the release of the former NAACP leader’s book, In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World. She also allegedly deposited almost $84,000 in several monthly installments without reporting it.
Rachel claims she “fully disclosed her information,” and declined to answer any further questions.
