PARK VIEW — Who knew the D.C. Housing Authority checked blog posts so vigilantly? A few days ago, someone sent PoPville an email decrying the horrendous conditions and violations at Park Morton. The neighborhood blog regularly receives and re-posts D.C. residents' complaints and editorial-style emails regarding everything from opinions on pop-up houses to heads' up about destruction of property. Yet, the Housing Authority jumped on the complaints aired in this post immediately and released the following statement today: "During the inspection, it was determined that the online post was submitted by an adult dependent of a Park Morton resident. That dependent admitted to causing the destruction of property and making a false report to a neighborhood website." PoPville has since deleted the post.
