Boston bombing family possibly collected $100,000 taxpayer money in public assistance
BOSTON -- $100,000. That's the amount of money taxpayers may have forked over in public assistance to support the accused Boston bombers and their parents.
The Boston Herald reports benefits for the Tsarnaev brothers and their parents included such things as cash, food stamps and Section 8 Housing over a decade from 2002 to 2012.
The new details are part of 500 documents handed over to a Massachusetts State Committee investigating the amount of benefits the Tsarnaev family received.
It's not clear whether any taxpayer dollars helped support the actual bombing.
