Ben Carson: Not You Too? Corruption And Nepotism Alleged

We knew… we all knew including his supporters, that Ben Carson was unqualified to be the head of a large Federal bureaucracy as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. He had previously disputed the need for the department and has done little except to oversee its gradual dismantling.

It seems Carson has shown himself quite compatible with the rest of the administration by engaging in overt corruption, even after being warned by even the Trump ethics officials that what he was about to do was wrong.

Last year when Carson initiated his “listening tour” shortly after the election to get feedback from area business leaders, in Baltimore, where Carson was made famous for his surgical exploits at Johns Hopkins Hospital. His wife, son, and daughter-in-law attended several Baltimore events to understand about future business opportunities. After being specifically warned by Linda Cruciani, HUD’s Deputy General Counsel for Operations. Carson promised there would be “no conflict of interest.”

Ben Carson, Jr., a local Baltimore businessman, also invited several associates and was involved in coordinating the Baltimore event. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (Crew) has filed Freedom of Information Requests to see if the public is paying Carson’s family members for things like; Bible study sessions at the White House, and private plane travel for family members. Other watchdog groups have requested information but apparently, Ben Carson has denied fee waivers for any request for information regarding subjects that might shed a negative light on Carson and his family. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRW) filed a lawsuit in the US District Court for the District of Columbia. There are allegations of a $485 million No-Bid contract being awarded to Carson’s daughter-in-law. I’m sure Ben was taught growing up as a child that, “you can’t do what they do.” He should have listened.

  1. Maybe in those alleged paid Bible study sessions they neglected to read that “a little leaven destroys the whole loaf”. I’m sure God didn’t bless him with “gifted hands” to take part in corruption. He & Omarosa both got the melanin wake-up call. Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.
