A Michigan woman who won $1 million in the lottery is defending her decision to keep receiving food stamps.

"I thought that they would cut me off, but since they didn't I thought maybe it was OK because I'm not working," Amanda Clayton said.

Clayton won the money last fall and has since paid cash for a new home, and bought a new car.

The free ride ended when she was spotted using a state-issued food assistance card at a grocery store.
