HUD is not a family business. Ben Carson should stop treating it like one.

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson has serious ethical issues.
His family members are making decisions at HUD.
Despite warnings from lawyers, he let his son help plan a HUD listening tour. Ben Carson Jr. tried to invite his business partners to the tour.
Carson Jr. also copied his wife on government emails. Neither of them are government employees.
Secretary Carson wasn’t done. He also brought his wife and daughter-in-law to official meetings.
Finally, Carson’s wife, Candy, apparently picked out his $31,000 furniture purchase. And then got a staffer demoted for refusing the excessive spending.
Secretary Carson, HUD belongs to the taxpayers — not your family.
