Breaking News: More Taxpayer Money Wasted on Octomom

by at . Comments

In case you didn't hate her enough, just be glad you don't live in La Habra, Calif. If you happen to, our sympathies! Police say the department has spent thousands in overtime pay to look after Octomom Nadya Suleman and her family.

Resources were spent checking on the Suleman family during regular patrol hours and responding to calls at the house, though the total cost isĀ  not known.

Nadya Suleman, 33, gave birth to the longest-living set of octuplets in history - the last of whom went home last week - back on January 26.

She has six other children, all younger than 8.

Octomom has been widely criticized by some members of the media, as she is single, unemployed and supporting her family - before the octuplets were even - born with food stamps, disability payments and student loans. But who's counting?

La Habra Police spokeswoman Cindy Knapp said the city will not seek restitution from Nadya Suleman for police escorts that accompanied babies home from Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center, or for other costs.

"Virtually all police services are free to residents of the community," she said. "There are no legal provisions or paths for cost recovery under the specific circumstances or service provided to the Sulemans at this point."

The department began working closely with the Suleman family after the two strongest of the infants were brought home in mid-March. The black SUV carrying Suleman, the babies and nurses was swarmed by paparazzi at stoplights.

Knapp said when the second and third sets of two babies were discharged from the hospital, police units and a supervisor guarded the cul-de-sac for her.

Hey, at least the Octomom reality show is officially a go. That shouldn't cause any additional chaos on her street or anything. Click to enlarge more pics:
