Former Spokane NAACP president Rachel Dolezal facing theft charges

Activist Rachel Dolezal leaves the 'Today Show' taping at the NBC Rockefeller Center Studios

She resigned from the NAACP after her parents revealed that she was white, and had been lying for a number of years.

This was discovered to be a falsehood, as the department found out that she had deposited almost $84,000 in her bank account between August 2015 and September 2017 without reporting it. Money, according to the investigation, came from sales of Dolezal's autobiography as well as "the sale of her art, soaps, and handmade dolls".

Former NAACP official Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who posed as African American for years, is now facing charges of welfare fraud after investigators say she illegally received thousands of dollars in public assistance.

Yep. She was getting welfare.

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

The investigator reviewed Diallo's records and found that she had been reporting her income as usually less than $500 per month.

Dolezal reportedly received $8,747 in food assistance and $100 in childcare benefits according KHQ-TV, a local NBC affiliate, reported.

However, subpoenaed records allegedly revealed bank statements showing Dolezal deposited almost $84,000 into her bank account during the same period she was receiving public assistance. "The money, according to the case file, had come from authoring her book, 'In Full Color, ' speaking engagements, soap making, doll making, and the sale of her art", KHQ wrote.

Documents show Dolezal was made aware that she would be criminally prosecuted if she "willfully" made a false statement or failed to report things.

The former civil rights activist told investigators she "fully disclosed her information" and declined to answer further questions, the documents said.

For someone with so many secrets to protect, Rachel Dolezal hasn't been doing a good job of keeping a low profile considering she recently starred in the Netflix documentary The Rachel Divide. "This is known as an Intentional Program Violation", says the court documents.
