Do GOPer women benefit from their husbands's prosperity?

(OKLAHOMA CITY) The Tulsa World has investigated the financial reports of several Oklahoma legislators and governor to see how much in the way of Federal farm subsidies they have received over the last several years. Some of these tax-paid legislators are professional farmers while most are engaged in the agricultural industry as a side-line to their white-collar day jobs as lawyers and doctors.
Some legislators have reported the subsidies as income as required by law, others have not. Most of the payments have been for wheat crops.
Let's look at two of the GOPers who have cried the loudest about the uselessness and waste of government spending, Rep. Leslie Osborn, Tuttle; and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin-Christensen, but who have received large amounts of Federal assistance , i.e. tax-payer dollars.
There's this comment from Rep. Osborn: "Osborn said receiving the subsidies does not contradict her fiscally conservative platform. She also noted that the payments were in her husband's name."
This is a laughable excuse! Does she not benefit from her husband's prosperity, yes or no?
