President Donald Trump knew that Dr. Ben Carson, now the HUD Secretary, was a brilliant pick for his already-brilliant cabinet. Adding Carson’s intelligence and shocking detective skills turned out to be a game-changing move.
What Sec. Carson found during an independent audit of HUD while it was under former President Obama’s control was nothing short of breath-taking and infuriating.
Yet, the media is absolutely silent. Imagine that?
USA Politics Today reports:
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson has gotten down to business.
The results of a new, independent audit of the last years of President Barack Obama’s term — 2015 and 2016 — show an incredible mismanagement of funds and a wealth of errors.
Here’s what Audit Report 2017-FO-0005, released Wednesday, notes:
“The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were $516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively. There were several other unresolved audit matters, which restricted our ability to obtain sufficient, appropriate evidence to express an opinion.”
That is a lot of waste, fraud, and abuse.
The audit continues, noting exactly why they made a “check-up” of the department:
“Our objective was to express an opinion on the fairness of HUD’s consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) applicable to the Federal Government. This report presents our reissued independent auditor’s report on HUD’s fiscal years 2016 and 2015 (restated) consolidated financial statements, including an update to our report on HUD’s internal controls.”
