The state auditor has taken a look at the food stamp program in Ohio and thinks there might be some abuse.
Auditor Dave Yost looked at several factors in the federal food stamp program: things like even-dollar transactions, multiple purchases within an hour and other unusual activities. He found signs of potential abuse but says it wasn’t widespread.
“It is a relatively small percentage. The trouble is the program is so big that even a small percentage of problem has a big price tag,” he said.
