Description

This series of stories showed how a housing authority director abused her position. She spent time on personal matters while on the clock, approved mortgage assistance for her daughter-in-law through a program that had yet to be approved and bought a truck for $100 from the authority for her son before the truck could go up for public auction. The reports prompted a housing authority investigation of the director and she later resigned.
