Ever since Ben Carson was named the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, he has shown numerous times that he is the right man for the job. Already a successful neurosurgeon and author, Carson has done quite a lot of make America a better country.
In the eight long years Obama was President, he allowed almost every part of the country to become corrupt. Now, Carson is trying to find a way to get rid of all that corruption and show that his department is no joke.
Awhile ago, Carson made a shocking revelation. He found evidence that Lorena Loren, HUD director in Michigan, stole $336,000 of taxpayer funds and used those funds to take care of her personal needs, reports UConservative.
Watchdog group Judicial Watch stated that over the course of several years, Loren abused her position in order to get hundreds of thousands of dollars from the agency. She went on to use that money to buy furniture, alcohol, clothes, makeup and other personal items, but was never caught for doing so.
Loren used to work as the executive director of the St. Clair Housing Commission for a branch in Michigan. Her job included providing assistance to very low-income families, the elderly and the disabled to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing in the private market.
Instead of helping poor families buy their own house, townhouse or apartment with vouchers, she found a way to steal money while remaining undetected. Well, thanks to Ben Carson, she will finally pay for what she has done.
