    Default Seattle welfare recipient lives in million-dollar lake front home



    Federal agents raided the home this weekend but have not released the woman or her husband's name because they have not officially been charged with a crime.
    However, federal documents obtained by KING 5 News show the couple currently receives more than $1,200 a month in public housing vouchers, plus state and government disability checks and food stamps. They have been receiving the benefits since 2003.
    The 2,500 square-foot home, which includes gardens and a boat dock, is valued at $1.2 million. And even though the couple has been receiving the benefits for nearly 10 years, records show that they accurately listed the address of their current home when applying for the state and federal benefits.
    A federal official told KING 5 that the couple likely took advantage of a loophole, which allows low-income individuals to receive financial assistance to help them pay their rent and move away from housing projects. However, the law does not require officials to verify what type of home the benefits recipient is living in.
    As if the million dollar home weren't enough, the supposedly low-income couple also gave money to various charities and traveled around the world to locales in Turkey, Tel Aviv and resort towns in Mexico, according to court records.

    What's not in this piece is that even a home over a million dollars isnt alot of money to Seattle. Same with the Bay Area, that is almost the median price for some places.

    But this is ridiculous, then you wonder why a conservative" like myself has a problem with entitlements? The question should be, why dont you!!!

    I am going to go out and start impregnating every women that will let me, this is my new career choice. I can't believe I talked my ex's not to have a baby, I need to get scandalous here. fuck.

    SEATTLE -- Records obtained by KING 5 Investigators show that government inspectors were aware that a Seattle resident was receiving housing assistance to live in a $1.2 million home on Lake Washington.
    Inspectors visited the home at least nine time since Lyudmila Shimonova moved in -- yet none of the officials reported the possibility of fraud. Altogether, Shimonova received $135,000 in housing assistance.
    Annual inspections required


    The government requires annual inspections of property covered by HUD rent subsidies. The inspections are safety related: The government wants to be sure that the publicís money isn't going to subsidize dangerous or uninhabitable properties.

    Documents reviewed by KING 5 show that Lyudmila was truthful about her waterfront address, which federal court records show she has lived at since 2003. And inspectors noted the home's features. According to a February 2009 inspection report, the inspector noted the house is above average, has a deck, high-end appliances, a Jacuzzi tub and a view.

    Inspectors recorded all those things but never reported any suspicion about fraud, according to the Seattle Housing Authority. SHA employees conduct the yearly inspections of any property that receives HUD dollars and can and do report fraud, but didnít in this case.

    The home is actually owned by Seattle doctor David Silverstein, whom Shimonova identified as her landlord when she filed for housing and cash assistance and food stamps.

    Government investigators believe Silverstein and Shimonova are actually married and that they live together in the lakeside house.

    The KING 5 Investigators obtained a copy of the search warrant pertaining to the recent search of the 2,500 square-foot waterfront home. Agents seized a "photo album of family and dog," "greeting cards (anniversary and birthday)," and "2 postcards from Ruben to Mom and Dad." These are things agents might use to try to prove the couple is married.
    Neither Shimonova or Silverstein has been charged.
