    be the only thing that we might count on.  He's got the rest of the government in his pocket with his hand picked cronies in place.  

    To the Republicans, that HUD money was just another pile of cash to dip their hands into - just like the money that was supposed to go to homeowners under the Justice Department settlement that Walker used to close a budget hole.  But this money comes with federal strings attacked.  Pull that string and the whole corrupt mess might just unravel.

      one of the state's non-profits over a decade ago.  It seems the dimwit in charge of a certain county's Section 515 housing authority thought the Americans with Disabilities Act didn't apply to her.  

      When the first investigator phoned this property manager and asked why I was turned away, the idiot told her my references said I'd be a terrible tenant.  The HUD investigator responded, that's funny, I called her, too, and they told me the exact opposite.  

      Loans for Section 515 Rural Rental housing come from the USDA so the HUD investigators wanted to get that company real bad.  Plus, I guess, there was the baldfaced lying to the HUD investigator.  They were talking about what could stand up in court before investigator #2 even got to my house.  (I'm not sure if he was from HUD or Justice.)  My only problem was proving my disability.  It's not like I'm in a wheelchair or something likewise obvious.  The only way to prove mine is with a brain autopsy and I'm unwilling to go that far.  They just couldn't come up with enough evidence.  

      In short, the HUD office in Milwaukee has been after these private companies for years.
