Adult Baby, Stanley Thornton, Jr., Cleared Of Social Security Fraud, Demands Apology
Talk about the nanny state.
A man living as an “adult baby” in California claims the federal government will allow him to continue collecting Social Security disability checks, after investigators apparently closed the probe into his case requested by Sen. Tom Coburn.
Stanley Thornton drew the outrage of Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, after he was featured on the National Geographic Channel show “Taboo” earlier this year. Coburn asked for an investigation from the Social Security Administration, questioning why he was allowed to receive federal benefits — all the while living part of his life as a baby, sleeping in a crib and drinking from a bottle.

But Thornton, in a lengthy essay on his website, said the Social Security Administration and other agencies have cleared him – and he excoriated Coburn for his involvement.
