Miami housing agency fraud continues

In a recent installment of the on-going series "House of Lies," the Miami Herald's Debbie Cenziper and Larry Lebowitz uncovered more corruption in the Miami-Dade Housing Agency. Oscar Rivero had become a favored developer for the local housing authority - collecting millions, yet building nothing. "Today, the land where Rivero promised dozens of homes for the poor is still vacant, cordoned off by fences -- eyesores in already distressed neighborhoods. Rivero hasn't delivered a single house even though he's held on to millions of dollars in public money -- while buying personal properties and an office for more than $4.9 million." Following the story, Rivero was arrested and charged with "two first-degree felonies: grand theft and committing an organized scheme to defraud."
