Michigan lottery winner charged with fraud

LINCOLN PARK, Mich. -- A Michigan lottery winner is being charged with fraud.

25-year-old Amanda Clayton won $1 million last October.

She not only failed to report her winnings, as required by law. She also collected over $5,000 in food and medical benefits.

Clayton defended her actions, saying that she doesn't have a job.

Last week, Governor Snyder signed two bills blocking lottery winners from getting welfare.
