The Department of Housing and Urban Development is cutting back on programs in record numbers. Now we know where the monies are being spent. The US government has converted to run jibing a US corporation –top heavy.

According to new reports Secretary Ben Carson spent $31,561 on office furniture. On Pennsylvania Avenue the people are talking about cutting his agency’s spending and depriving deserving Americans from housing and living essentials. The purchase order included a table and chairs all purchased with tax payers funds.

But that's not all!

He is also facing questions for spoon feeding his son contracts even after department lawyers warned Carson that including Ben Carson Jr. a businessman who does business with the federal government could create a conflict of interests.

In the case of the furniture, federal law requires congressional approval “to furnish or redecorate the office of a department head” if the costs exceeds $5,000. The explanation was the request was not made because the table was purchased to serve building wide- despite being in Carson’s office suite.

But that's not all!

Helen G. Foster a former top HUD official, filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel, accusing the department of demoting her and transferring her after resisting Mrs. Carson’s attempts to get around the $5,000 redecoration law. The Office of Special Counsel is a governmental whistle blower agency design to provide accountability.

This Ben Carson is far from the Afro wielding brilliant surgeon that came to prominence decades ago. Ben Carson has left Detroit and lost his way.
