The Tsarnaev family, including the suspected terrorists and their parents, benefited from more than $100,000 in taxpayer-funded assistance.

The Boston Herald previously broke the story that the Boston Bombers and their families were on welfare until last year.

Now the Herald has some more details, apparently based on documents produced to Massachusetts legislators by the Patrick administration, Tsarnaev family received $100G in benefits:

The Tsarnaev family, including the suspected terrorists and their parents, benefited from more than $100,000 in taxpayer-funded assistance — a bonanza ranging from cash and food stamps to Section 8 housing from 2002 to 2012, the Herald has learned.

“The breadth of the benefits the family was receiving was stunning,” said a person with knowledge of documents handed over to a legislative committee today.

The state has handed over more than 500 documents to the 11-member House Post Audit and Oversight Committee, which today met for the first time and plans to call in officials from the Department of Transitional Assistance to testify.

  2. Love the “editor’s note,” Doug.

    The problem is not that the Tsarnaev family had their living expenses forcibly wrested from productive American taxpayers who gave no explicit consent to this kind of “charity.” The problem is that anyone should be the beneficiary of such ill-gotten gains, which are bereft of any moral merit whatsoever.

    To quote Dinesh D’Souza (for the benefit of most of our American Catholic bishops): “The effect of compulsion is always to strip the virtue out of a transaction.”
