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.

"The bank records, court documents say, showed Diallo had deposited about $83,924 into her bank account in several monthly installments between August 2015 and September 2017, without reporting the income to the Department of Social and Health Services".

A former NAACP leader in Washington state whose life unraveled after she was outed as a white woman pretending to be black has been charged with welfare fraud.

Yep. She was getting welfare. USA Today reports that she could face up to 15 years in prison.

That promises at least an order of magnitude accuracy improvement, said Frank Flechtner, GRACE-FO project manager at GFZ. When water or ice fills an area - such as a coastline or river basin - the liquid slightly increases that area's mass.

In addition to possible jail time, Dolezal is also "disqualified from receiving Food Assistance for at least a 12 month period for breaking a Food Assistance rule on objective", according to court documents. DSHS investigator Kyle Bunge said Dolezal had claimed that "her only source of income was $300.00 per month in gifts from friends". However, the department found that she had deposited almost $84,000 in her bank account between August 2015 and September 2017 without reporting it.

The money, court filings said, came from her book and speaking engagements, soap making, doll making and artwork sales. Diallo did, however, report a one-time job in October 2017 for which she earned $20,000.

She was also the subject of a Netflix documentary entitled, 'The Rachel Divide'. She may also be disqualified from receiving food assistance for at least a year, documents said. Her story received global attention, stirring a debate about racial identity and fabrication, and cost her her job as an instructor in the Africana Studies program at Eastern Washington University and her position with the N.A.A.C.P.
