The Obama Administration has spent $36.2 million on studies that justify awarding huge sums to leftist groups that help poor minorities with “housing counseling,” a Judicial Watch investigation has found.
JW launched a probe to uncover how much taxpayer money is being spent
on research that, incredibly, always concludes housing counseling is a
positive and valuable thing for low-income populations and minorities.
The Obama Administration has poured tens of millions of dollars into the
coffers of leftwing community groups that help minorities seeking a
good home or struggling to keep one on the verge of foreclosure. In
fact, in last few months alone, the nonprofits have received $42 million.
Among them are hundreds of national, regional and local organizations
like the powerful open borders group with close ties to the president,
the National Council of La Raza (NCLR). Earlier this year the NCLR,
whose federal funding has skyrocketed
since one of its top officials got a job on the Obama White House, got
nearly $2 million to help combat predatory lending, train poor Latinos
about financial literacy and help them become homeowners.
