Any entrepreneur realizes that, for an organization to be productive, fraud and waste must be dispensed if they exist.
When fraud and waste exist in view of purposeful carelessness or bungle, it’s an ideal opportunity to do some house keeping and dispose of the general population that are ripping off the organization.
At the point when the organization getting ripped off is an office of the government, supported by us citizens, that exists to give minimal cost housing to low-salary families, somebody should be considered responsible for the extortion and waste.
The issue is the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Inspector General (IG), the government guard dog made by (HUD) to manage and report such misrepresentation and waste misuse, has been concealing the data contained in no less than 14 reports. Also, Ben Carson is on the warpath!
The Daily Caller revealed:
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.
The HUD Inspector General (IG) posted its systemic implication reports – documents that reveal opportunities for fraud in agency programs – to its website. A comparison between that listing and another The DCNF previously obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request showed 14 reports from 2011 through 2014 were excluded from the IG’s the website.
No less than three of those reports were additionally kept from HUD, which means top authorities may not know about the issues and recommended fixes.
One unreleased 2011 report uncovered that 1,300 outlaws – including attackers and killers – were illegally living in HUD-supported homes, and neighborhood experts dealing with the properties declined to evict them, The DCNF already revealed.
The IG withheld another 2011 report, this one about a country Missouri town that has burned through $78 million of government dollars when it was granted in 2008 for catastrophe reserves.
Ben Carson looks to be going on the right path!
