LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville woman is accused of misrepresenting her household income in order to receive benefits according to a criminal complaint summons.

From July 2007 to January 2009, Tanita Bush, 46, apparently failed to report her correct income from El Shaddai Child Care and also failed to report that her daughter, Sankita Green, was unemployed.

Bush received almost $5,000 from SNAP/food stamps and over $4,000 in Medicaid overpayment.

She is being charged with 7 counts of false statement/misrepresentation to receive benefits.
