He Got Hooked

     From the Associated Press:
A Massachusetts man seen manning big fishing rods and harpooning huge fish on the reality show Wicked Tuna collected government benefits while claiming to be disabled and unable to work, federal prosecutors said.
Paul Hebert, 50, of Gloucester, Massachusetts, accepted more than $44,000 in Social Security and Medicaid benefits between 2010 and 2013, according to a four-count indictment filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Burlington.

If these allegations are true, I'm curious who the doctors were who examined him and stated that he was disabled.

The documents shown on screen on NBC Nightly News last night referred to receipt of SSI, and included some sort of allegations that he was living with a woman [possibly SSA is trying to say he's holding out?]
Why can't the reporters get it right?
