U.S. senator cites Bradenton Housing Authority for 'egregious' past

February 1, 2014 

You know the situation couldn't be worse when a U.S. senator from faraway Iowa rails against a local agency -- in this case, Sen. Charles Grassley deriding the Bradenton Housing Authority on the floor of that august institution and on a national cable station, C-SPAN2. Ouch.

His Tuesday speech specified the BHA as the "most egregious examples" of lax federal Department of Housing and Urban Development oversight practices. Ouch again.

But those are well deserved punches for past practices as the BHA works toward righting the ship.
