Strip clubs are known for doling out risque entertainment -- but welfare benefits?

That has been the case in California, where more than $12,000 in welfare cash was dispensed from strip club ATMs from 2007 to 2009 as part of the state's Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, the Los Angeles Times reported. It turns out that those needy families weren't prohibited from using their state-issued ATM cards there, and some took advantage.

The report comes on the heals of an earlier Times report on $4.8 million in welfare cash withdrawn since 2007 from ATMs at casinos and poker rooms. But the days of access to welfare benefits at casinos and strip clubs likely are numbered.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has ordered the department overseeing the program to remove casino and strip club ATMs from the list of permitted welfare disbursement sites.

"We'll take a wide-ranging look and apply some common sense to the list of outlets where cash assistance should not be withdrawn," Department of Social Services spokeswoman Lizelda Lopez wrote in an e-mail to The Times, announcing that her department had "taken steps to deactivate ATMs in adult entertainment clubs."

Strip clubs say they have no way of telling that welfare benefits can be accessed from their ATMs. Managers say most machines are provided by third parties.

After the Times' report a week ago on the casino cash, Schwarzenegger directed the Department of Social Services to produce a plan to reduce "waste, fraud and abuse" in the welfare program.

Schwarzenegger has proposed scrapping the CalWorks program under which the ATM cards are issued, but advocates for the poor warn against further reducing the state's social safety net, even if it means withdrawing cash at gambling establishments.

"Casinos in some rural places have become like little hubs of the community," Michael Herald, a lobbyist for the Western Center on Law and Poverty, told the Times.

Hopefully it gets fixed.

Another thing that pissed me off was this girl that was kidnapped for many years is getting $20 milion dollars Where in the hell is that money coming from and why I love this state for its geography but the people suck.

Move to California! No job no problem! Life's more appealing without one! The US needs to get rid of welfare all together. If someone can't get a job they aren't trying hard enough. If someone has 38 kids that they can't afford to support it's not my problem. "If you can't feed em don't breed em." Assistance is killing this country. It is just way to appealing to be lazy and get paid than to work for your money.

The program has good intentions and people do need temp help at times, I do belive that... but it doesn't work when it isn't monitered and regulated.

Well the first thing that needs to go is getting more assistance for each additional child. That would be at least a step in the right direction.

Actually that's cheap. If I understand correctly, she was in the back yard of a known sex offender who was investigated several times for violations and this girl was never found at any of them. Clearly someone in the state was not doing their job and she fell through the cracks. Had it gone to a regular trial, the settlement would have been alot higher. If I'm wrong here, please correct me.

Get rid of it??? HELL the FEDS are expanding it! They are promoting entitlements. Making us dependent on them is expanding the welfare state. Wait until government healthcare kicks in, you aint seen welfare yet until that starts.

I think I'd rather spend my welfare on some of that Cannibis Cup weed they sell in the vending machines out there, personally...

Though I've always been one to advocate skin mags over the titty bar.
