Rachel Dolezal Booked On Multiple Charges – Including Fraud


Rachel Dolezal, the former Spokane NAACP president who became well known after being exposed as a white woman claiming to be black, has been booked and released on multiple charges. One of those charges being welfare fraud.

As being reported by

Former Spokane NAACP President Nkechi Diallo — who became infamous as Rachel Dolezal, a white woman identifying as black — was booked and fingerprinted at a Washington state jail Monday as she awaits trial on multiple charges, including welfare fraud.

Diallo pleaded not guilty to state charges of first-degree theft by welfare fraud, making false verification and second-degree perjury last month. A judge ordered her freed on her own recognizance and gave her a deadline of Monday evening to report to the Spokane County jail for booking and fingerprinting.

Diallo, who changed her name from Rachel Dolezal in October 2016, is accused of receiving more than $8,800 in food and childcare assistance illegally between August 2015 and November 2017.

Diallo/Dolezal had a fraud case opened against her in 2017, after a state investigator was notified that she had written a book. At the time, she was reporting an income of under $500 per month. According to her bank statements, Diallo had deposited $84,000 between 2015 and 2017, without reporting the majority of it to the state Department of Social and Health Services.
