Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 02, 2018

Officials at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) expressed concerns that Secretary Ben Carson recently risked violating ethics rules by getting family help in organizing a HUD event last year, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. Linda Cruciani, HUD's deputy general counsel for operations, and other department officials were reportedly uneasy that Carson's son and daughter-in-law were involved with last summer's "listening tour" event in Baltimore. They worried that Ben Carson Jr., who is a local businessman, was inviting potential business associates to the event, which "gave the appearance that the secretary may be using his position for his son's private gain," according to a memo obtained by The Washington Post. Carson denies any conflict of interest. He said in a statement to the newspaper that his family has "never influenced any decision at HUD."

They can't fire (where's my luggage) Carson.

He is Trump's last African American friend!

And the black unemployment rate at the White House will increase to 100%! They already fired that crazy lazy snake eating Omarosa.

I believe the word you're looking for is " Corrupity "

So Dr. Carson's wife, son and daughter in law invited friends and business associates to a HUD event in their hometown and actually had the audacity to attend.
THE HORROR!!!
I am just surprised that MaryTylerDouche didn't use the word "uppity" in his summary.
