Public Housing

I used to work security in low income housing projects.  HUD is considering banning smoking in low income housing.  They already don't permit drugs.  Or roommates.  Or too many cars.  Or long term visitors.  Or a massive list of things that you can't do in low income housing.  This ban is pointless and futile.

Most of these rules are observed only in the breaking of them.  The common scam is for a woman with a couple kids to get a three bedroom apartment at government, that is taxpayer expense.  She then has the two kids double up and her boyfriend get the extra room and pays her rent.  He is often the father of one or more of her children.

So she not only gets free housing, but she gets an income as well.  Trying to evict them for doing this is next to impossible.  I saw it constantly but never saw anyone get evicted over it.  Just another way to defraud the taxpayers; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
