Millions misspent by housing authority

Michael Biesecker and Pat Stith of the Raleigh News & Observer reviewed records from the Durham Housing Authority, finding that the agency "improperly spent millions for temporary labor, auto repair, landscaping and legal advice. Other financial records requested by The N&O are missing, officials say." The authority paid more than $2.3 million for temporary workers without soliciting bids for the work or signing contracts. In contrast, Raleigh's housing authority paid $183,960 on similar work between 2000 and 2004.
