Secretary Ben Carson of the Department of Housing and Urban Development is living up to his title as a man of integrity and has been draining the swamp by sniffing out corruption that has costs Americans massive amounts of money.
Ben Carson has exposed Lorena Loren, a state HUD Director in Michigan who embezzled government funds for her own personal use. She has stolen more than $336,000 from taxpayers funds to give her a huge salary boost.
“A high-ranking public housing official charged with providing government-subsidized homes to the poor stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from the agency and used it to buy furniture, alcohol, clothes, makeup and other personal items. The crooked public official scammed the government for years undetected which may seem unbelievable though not when it comes to the agency she worked for, a bastion of corruption known as Housing and Urban Development (HUD).”
Criminal theft is one thing, but to steal money that was intended to help the lower class, pathetic!
“[A]n executive director at one of those branches in Michigan gets busted for embezzling $336,000. Her name is Lorena Loren and for years she served as the executive director of the St. Clair Housing Commission, which administers a local Section 8 housing program in southeast Michigan. Section 8 is the federal government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly and the disabled to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing in the private market. The program is administered locally by Public Housing Agencies (PHA) like the St. Clair Housing Commission so the cash comes from the feds though there appears to be no oversight. The idea is to subsidize housing costs, via vouchers, so the poor can live in privately owned, single-family homes, townhouses or apartments they otherwise couldn’t afford.”
This kind of thing has been going on for decades now and it’s about time we have people like Ben Carson in the right positions to put an end to as much of it as possible.
“Clearly, this is part of a much broader epidemic at HUD. A Michigan-area newspaper editorial blasts the agency for failing to protect taxpayer dollars and low-income families that need help.”
“Hopefully President Trump’s new HUD secretary, Ben Carson, will clean some house at the fraud-infested agency. We don’t’ need a newspaper editorial to tell us that ‘HUD clearly has a gap in its fiduciary responsibility.’”
From the looks of it, Dr. Ben Carson is a man of his word, integrity, and true American values. God Bless Him! Do your thing Dr. Carson! The American people have your back.
