Rags to riches, but still on food stamps

MICHIGAN (FOX44) We've all dreamed about winning the lottery, making all your money problems disappear!

Well for one Michigan man, this dream is now a reality, but he's still using food stamps.
Last June, Leroy Fick took home a two-million dollar prize on the lottery show "Make Me Rich."
While everyone loves a good rags-to-riches story, over the past year some say Fick was still using a Bridge Card, Michigan's version of food stamps.
He's not even denying the allegations and some people are outraged.
Fick says, the IRS took more than half his winnings, if that were true it would still leave him almost a million dollars.
