Any entrepreneur realizes that, all together for an organization to be productive, extortion and waste must be dispensed with wherever they exist. In any case, when fraud and waste exist in view of deliberate carelessness or mismanagement, it’s a great opportunity to do some house cleaning and dispose of the general population that are ripping off the organization.
At the point when the organization getting ripped off is an agency of the federal government, supported by us citizens, that exists to give minimal effort housing to low-pay families, somebody should be considered responsible for the fraud and waste.<>
The issue is the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Inspector General (IG), the government watchdog made by (HUD) to administer and report such fraud and waste abuses, has been concealing the data contained in no less than 14 reports. What’s more, Ben Carson is on the warpath!
Via The Daily Caller:
The reports concern issues plaguing the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), including felons illegally living in federally-funded homes, tax fraud and millions of dollars sitting in unused bank accounts for years. The department’s 2017 budget is $48.9 billion and it has 8,375 employees.
At least three of those reports were also kept from HUD, meaning top department officials may not even be aware of the problems and suggested remedies.
One unreleased 2011 report revealed that 1,300 fugitives – including rapists and murderers – were illegally living in HUD-funded homes, and local authorities managing the properties refused to evict them, The DCNF previously reported.
The IG withheld another 2011 report, this one about a rural Missouri town that had not spent $78 million of federal tax dollars it was awarded in 2008 for disaster funds.
Clearly, there is considerably more to the story, and the agency entrusted with monitoring waste and fraud has failed, or perhaps spiked it in the wake of getting a couple of settlements, rewards and livens! Whenever there are criminal activities happening in the administration, discover who is benefitting from it and you have your culprit. The HUD IG ought to be on Ben Carson’s rundown of individuals to examine next!
