The Boston Marathon terrorists and their family members received over $100,000 in welfare benefits over a 10-year period, the Boston Herald has learned.

From 2002 to 2012, the Tsarnaev’s were given “a bonanza ranging from cash and food stamps to Section 8 housing,” the article said.

According to the Herald, the Mass. state House Post Audit and Oversight Committee met Monday to begin its investigation into the government assistance benefits the Tsarnaev’s received.

“I can assure members of the public that this committee will actively review every single piece of information we can find because clearly the public has a substantial right to know what benefits, if any, this family or individuals accused of some horrific crimes were receiving,” the committee’s chairman, Democrat Rep. David Linsky, told the paper Monday.

“The breadth of the benefits the family was receiving was stunning,” a person with “knowledge of documents handed over to a legislative committee” told the Herald.
