Grifters Cash In on Subsidized Housing

As if the breeding program known as the welfare state were not producing government dependents quickly enough, Big Government has been subsidizing housing for needy tenants who do not exist:

An audit released last month found that managers of Section 8 housing in Jefferson County, Texas, defrauded the government by stealing the identities of former tenants and falsifying incomes.

According to the inspector general, Beverly Place Apartments in Groves billed the Department of Housing and Urban Development for “at least 97 tenants who did not exist or whose income eligibility was either falsified or unsupported.”

The inspector general noted that “nonexistent tenants” were ghost tenants who either never lived in the apartment building or were past tenants who had moved out. …

“As a result [of the fraud], HUD paid the owner more than $800,000 in subsidies for units that were either vacant or no longer occupied by an approved tenant and for tenants with unconfirmed income,” the inspector general added.

To put the haul at over a cool $million,

The inspector general also found that managers stole over $230,000 in reimbursable utility checks that were meant for tenants at the property.

The more public money is thrown around, the more massive the scale of fraud. Once faceless bureaucrats have confiscated the money you earn, not even they know where it will end up. But then, what difference does it make? In any case the money is lost.


On a tip from Torcer.

  • We are quickly moving towards a cashless system of bartering in exchange for goods snd services. Woe to them that have no skills to trade in. Making lots of subsidized babies isn’t really a skill, is it.

    Grifters, hackers, id thieves, welfare cheats; all of these should be executed.

    No longer is it necessary to rise early and risk one’s life in order to rob the american taxpayer.

    Certainly not sustainable. Those EBT card will run dry, one way or another. Even if the leftists gain the power they crave, the spigot will be shut off when the welfare culture’s votes are no longer needed to maintain power. It’s never “to each according to his needs” in practice.

    “……The more public money is thrown around, the more massive the scale of fraud…..”

    Very true Dave. Consider for a moment: Medicare.

    Many of us will recall that one of the tactics used in trying to sell Obamacare to the public was to make a roughly $716 Billion cut to Medicare. Politicians told us not to be alarmed about this cut however, since that amount “only” represented the “waste, fraud, and abuse”, they blithely noted was inherent in the system……


    You can, as an ostensible representative of the people, sit there and tell us that you have long been aware of that much theft going on in that program, and we’re supposed to feel good about your doing something about it finally? That’s a little over 2000 bucks for every man, women, and child in this country by the way.

    Sadly, Obamacare has been the law of the land now for several years. Anyone hear anything about the tremendous strides our elected officials have taken to eliminate that $716 in waste, fraud, and abuse? Anyone??? (cue the crickets…).

    Just like the housing program in Texas that the article references. The pols don’t care. It’s not their money– it OURS!!!
