It started this morning with the Post article about how a project to turn dilapidated apartments into homes for at-risk young men mishandled the public funds. Then Councilmember Jim Graham (D-Ward 1) also released a report indicating that the people in charge of the project misappropriated the money. To end the day, the D.C. Department of Housing and Community Development announced that one person in charge of the project has been let go. Since so many people were involved with Peaceoholics, this is probably just the beginning.
