A thorough investigation by the Washington Post
HUD awarded promotions & pay increases to 5 political operatives w/ no housing policy experience within their first months on the job.
The raises resulted in salaries between $98-$155k for the 5, all of whom had worked on Trump’s or Carson’s campaigns. https://t.co/w2zCpcRMiC

Of the 24 Trump administration HUD appointees without housing policy experience on their résumés or LinkedIn profiles, 16 listed work on either Carson’s or Trump’s presidential campaigns — or had personal connections to their families. https://t.co/Ux1uLhDoCa
