Rachel Dolezal, the former head of the civil rights group in Spokane, was charged on Tuesday for theft by welfare fraud and false identity verification in applying for public assistance, NBC affiliate KHQ-TV reports.

Authorities say Dolezal illegally received $8,747 in food assistance and $100 in child care assistance from August 2015 through November 2017. Investigators reviewed her Department of Social and Health Services paperwork and found she had been reporting her only source of income was $300 a month in gifts from friends. However, she also deposited nearly $84,000 into the bank from August of 2015 to September 2017, authorities said.

That money came from authoring her memoir, In Full Color, speaking engagements, soap making, doll making, and the sale of her art, according to the case file.
