Ben Carson Drains The Swamp — Look Who He Just Exposed For Stealing $336,000 Of Taxpayer Funds

Secretary Ben Carson of the Department of Housing and Urban Development is proving to be more than just the man of integrity that we knew him to be. He is also turning out to be something of an investigator, rooting out corruption that has cost Americans enormous sums of money.

While his primary responsibility might not be forensic accounting and personally conducting audits, he is responsible for the integrity of his department. And he is doing an outstanding job.

On the heels of other revelations of corruption that went on prior to his arrival as head of HUD, Dr. Carson has exposed a state HUD director who has embezzled government funds for personal use. This would be Lorena Loren, HUD director in Michigan who is now accused of stealing $336,000 of taxpayer funds and using those funds to go on a personal shopping extravaganza.

“A high-ranking public housing official charged with providing government-subsidized homes to the poor stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from the agency and used it to buy furniture, alcohol, clothes, makeup and other personal items. The crooked public official scammed the government for years undetected which may seem unbelievable though not when it comes to the agency she worked for, a bastion of corruption known as Housing and Urban Development (HUD).”

While all theft is rightly considered criminal, there is something especially despicable about stealing funds that are intended to help the poor. This is just what Judaical Watch has reported that has happened in a local branch of HUD.

“[A]n executive director at one of those branches in Michigan gets busted for embezzling $336,000. Her name is Lorena Loren and for years she served as the executive director of the St. Clair Housing Commission, which administers a local Section 8 housing program in southeast Michigan. Section 8 is the federal government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly and the disabled to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing in the private market. The program is administered locally by Public Housing Agencies (PHA) like the St. Clair Housing Commission so the cash comes from the feds though there appears to be no oversight. The idea is to subsidize housing costs, via vouchers, so the poor can live in privately owned, single-family homes, townhouses or apartments they otherwise couldn’t afford.”

While this has been going on nation-wide for decades, it’s about to stop.

“Clearly, this is part of a much broader epidemic at HUD. A Michigan-area newspaper editorial blasts the agency for failing to protect taxpayer dollars and low-income families that need help.”

The good news for everyone but the fraudsters is that Secretary Ben Carson is cleaning house.

“Hopefully President Trump’s new HUD secretary, Ben Carson, will clean some house at the fraud-infested agency. We don’t’ need a newspaper editorial to tell us that ‘HUD clearly has a gap in its fiduciary responsibility.’”

Given his integrity, there is every reason to believe that corruption at HUD is on its way out with Dr. Carson in charge.

    We are so Blessed to have Dr. Carson as the head of HUD. He is making a real clean sweep and saving money. He will be able to put the right amount to the right place. Keep the thieves out and improve places for those who deserve it. Proud of Carson’s efforts

    After the civil war, african americans should of been given some property. This democratic free housing system, that includes paid social workers they have to report to has killed us economically. So many Grandmothers daughter and grandchildren are homeless now I would just give a nuclear family a home and say here it’s yours from this point forward. I believe they would all go out to get jobs to pay for the utilities etc because its theres. Your perspective changes when it’s yours.

    We see all the reporting on the pathetic people that commit these crimes, but we never see what happens afterwords and what if any thing happens to them. We know that they are caught ripping us off and maybe get charged with a crime but that’s it. Great he caught her now what? We need to know what she stands to loose and if another liberal judge is

    The dems said Carson had no experience. Obviously a brain surgeon can figure out the money this broad stole. Now will she go to jail? Bet not. Seems dems have a way of getting out of things.

    GREAT BEN!!! You are a perfectionist at detecting thefts that occurred in the Obama regime. You can’t even call it an Administration as all Obama did was against what Americans needed. He tried to take our guns and give them to the terrorists so they could easily overtake us. He had someone giving guns to terrorists! Now America is being vandalized by many of them and BLM and Antifa who are knocking our HISTORY down and desecrating it. This is History that made America what she is today, along with God and prayer. I pray that God will step in and stop all this foolishness. We need a Heavenly Intervention!
