Felon awarded $1 million to supply AIDS/HIV services

In the third part of "Wasting Away," an investigation of D.C.'s AIDS program,The Washington Post found the city awarded a $1 million AIDS contract to a woman who had just been convicted in federal court for a mortgage fraud scheme that bilked lenders out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
