Excessive spending on one house

Please continue to dig into the SCAP mess. As a director of a nonprofit, I can clearly see that the funds green lighted by the Parks and Neighborhood Department were highly questionable and excessive. In this economy, with so many people struggling for jobs and housing, how could they so openly clear the way for money disbursement used in fraudulent ways and think it was going to fly?

Go by the parents' SCAP-purchased home and you decide whether the house was bought and rehabbed for the needy or just the parents in mind. I did and was shocked!
