    Ugh, Worst Mom Ever!

    This Vancouver, Washington woman, Rosie Costello, coached her kids to act like they were retarded in order to receive federal money:

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=2907201

    A woman admitted Monday that she coached her two children to fake retardation starting when they were 4 and 8 years old so she could collect Social Security benefits on their behalf.

    Rosie Costello, 46, admitted in U.S. District Court that she collected more than $280,000 in benefits, beginning in the mid-1980s. Most was from Social Security, but the state social services agency paid $53,000.
    There are a ton of news stories out there.

    Her kids are grown now and they were still stealing Social Security money until the son went to traffic court where there is a videotape of him being "normal."

    Pretty bad mom, but the title of worst mom ever probably goes to one of the ladies who killed their kids. Yeah.

    I wondered how they "acted retarded"?

    Twenty years of practice and coaching.

    Seriously depraved woman.

    Most women who kill their kids don't plan and act on it for twenty years, so while yes, technically they're the worst, I think 20+ years of wanting your kids to act retarded in order to collect money on their behalf is pretty much the worst thing ever.

    That's awful.

    I can't imagine anyone stooping to that level!

    It seems to me that the really "retarded" person in this story is the mother.

    My father used to say that everyone has a scheme for getting rich that will not work.

    Look, Stinkerbell, I made a mistake. Couldn't we have discussed this before you brought it all public? I'm sorry I made you act that way all these years.


    No, for real, that's horrible. I can't even imagine the mental anguish those kids went through throughout the years.

    No doubt. I think she should have to pay all the money back. That just sickens me.

    Stealing from garage sales? Really?

    Isn't there something that the Soc.Sec. Dept should need from a Doctor? I mean, if someone is going out on medical leave or maternity leave, in order to collect disability, one needs medical authorization.
