Tsarnaev $100K benefits: Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's family got $100K in benefits

The family of Boston bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev received more than $100,000 in public assistance over the past 10 years, according to a report by the Boston Herald.

The Herald reports the family received the taxpayer-supported public assistance from 2002 to 2012.

According to MSN News, a Massachusetts legislative committee is now investigating the benefits.

"I can assure members of the public that (the House Post Audit and Oversight 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," state Rep. David Linsky told the Herald.
