Ever since President Trump appointed Dr. Ben Carson as Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary, liberals didn’t constrain themselves from making silly allegations and critics of Carson, such as the one that a doctor is not suited to lead the HUD Department, or any other political branch.
Well, now it seems that he’s put all of them to shame as he recently discovered a major Obama-era scandal in the department.
Obtained by the Daily Sentry:
The Daily Wire reported that immediately after he was appointed, Carson ordered an audit of the entire Housing and Urban Development Department. During this audit, he was stunned to find $520 billion in bookkeeping errors.
“The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were $516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively,” the auditors wrote.
And that was only the beginning:
There were several other unresolved audit matters, which restricted our ability to obtain sufficient, appropriate evidence to express an opinion. These unresolved audit matters relate to (1) the Office of General Counsel’s refusal to sign the management representation letter, (2) HUD’s improper use of cumulative and first-in, first-out budgetary accounting methods of disbursing community planning and development program funds, (3) the $4.2 billion in nonpooled loan assets from Ginnie Mae’s stand-alone financial statements that we could not audit due to inadequate support, (4) the improper accounting for certain HUD assets and liabilities, and (5) material differences between HUD’s subledger and general ledger accounts. This audit report contains 11 material weaknesses, 7 significant deficiencies, and 5 instances of noncompliance with applicable laws and regulations.
The auditors said that these problems were detailed for each of the last three audits and they said the continued problems “were due to an inability to establish a compliant control environment, implement adequate financial accounting systems, retain key financial staff, and identify appropriate accounting principles and policies.”
Obviously, liberals have no idea who they are dealing with, as Dr. Carson has been killing it ever since he was appointed. At least, now we know why they’ve been so aggressive of his appointment – looks like they were afraid he would discover all the irregularities in the department.
