Rachel Dolezal Facing Felony Charges For Welfare Fraud — She Was Pretending To Be Poor!

It sounds like Rachel Dolezal is about to identify as a felon.

The former president of the NAACP's Spokane, Washington chapter rose to infamy when it was revealed she was posing as an African American.

The spotlight brought more scrutiny, as it often does *cough*Trump*cough*, and someone at the Department of Social and Health Services noticed gurl had a book deal but only reported $300/month income. Huh?

After a yearlong investigation, Dolezal — sorry, Nkechi Diallo, as she prefers — is facing charges of welfare fraud, perjury, and false verification for public assistance.

Yep. She was getting welfare. While also depositing about $84K into her back account over the course of two years, according to investigators.

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

He is expected to be arraigned later today.

Harvey Weinstein has been arrested on rape charges.

His bond is expected to be set at $2 million, according to CNN.

As you know, dozens of women from around the country and the world have come forward with accusations that they were sexually harassed or raped by Weinstein, a flood of allegations that reignited the #MeToo movement.

TMZ also reports that prosecutors are possibly looking to see if Harvey violated the Mann Act, which prohibits people from taking others across state lines with the intent of engaging in illegal sexual acts. If that's the case, they would have to prove that he intended to perform the sex act before traveling with the victim.

We'll keep you updated as Harvey is expected to be in court today.
