The Daily Outrage: Building it up just to tear it down

WHAT: Allocated $1.5 million in stimulus funding to the Housing Authority of Shreveport, La., which mismanaged the funds and rushed the projects, resulting in shoddy workmanship.

WHERE TO VENT: Call the office of HUD inspector general at 800-347-3735.
