Millions paid for uncompleted renovation and building projects

The seventh installment of The Washington Post's "Forced Out" series explores how a longtime city council member and former U.S. Housing and Urban Development official was paid millions of dollars for a series of housing projects marred by double-billing and dubious deals. In one case, the developer received $25 million from U.S. HUD to help dozens of working families buy affordable townhouses. Instead, he sold the houses to his daughter, two city officials, five of his employees or their relatives and a couple who have bought and sold millions of dollars in the Washington region.
