Tacoma-based Housing Authority Under Scrutiny

The (Tacoma) News Tribune is reporting that the FBI is investigating the Martin Luther King Housing Development Association regarding allegations of misspent public funds. From the story:

For months, questions have lingered about whether any law enforcement agency was – or would be – investigating the Tacoma-based housing nonprofit’s spending of a $4 million state budget appropriation and $400,000 federal loan. The nonprofit obtained the money in recent years to help it build a mixed-use business and housing center on Tacoma’s Hilltop, but today the site remains vacant.
