A good place to cut a government program

In the more than 3,000 public housing agencies nationwide funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and particularly inside the 172 that HUD considers the most troubled, ABC News and the Center for Public Integrity found a struggle to combat theft, corruption, and mismanagement. According to the report, one official embezzled $900,000 and bought a mansion. Other funds went to support sex workers.
The Obama administration does not seem to be on top of the waste fraud and abuse in this program. A loss of funding should get the attention of those who think there is value in such programs.
