Julian "Misspend Tax Money" Castro is running for POTUS

Back in early 2017, after Ben Carson  took over the Dept of Housing & Urban Development, a report was released stating there had been over $500 billion in misspending and  accounting errors during the previous administration's tenure.

Good lord, that's a lotta money!  Who was running the ship during that time?

Short answer: Obama.  Longer answer: Obama and  Julián  Castro, the Texas Democrat who just announced a Presidential campaign run for 2020.

Last weekend San Antonio's Julián Castro officially announced his run for president in 2020. 

His policy positions are exactly as you'd expect: streamline immigration, higher minimum wages, Trump is bad, spend more money, & stop the evil oil companies.  He's not exactly unique from the people he's challenging for the 2020 Dem POTUS nomination.  

Castro served as Obama’s Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary from 2014 - 2017.  Before that he was the mayor of San Antonio, Texas.

If Castro wins (and he won't) you can expect a lot more misspent government money to raise eyebrows.  Misspending money is kind of his thing.  He did it when he was Secretary of HUD and Mayor of San Antonio.

Back in 2014 Politico ran a story about how San Antonio failed to properly  spend funds approved by Congress to combat the housing crisis under  Castro's leadership.  The irony that Obama would choose someone with  that kind of track record to be his HUD Secretary is nothing short of  laughable.

At the time San Antonio was given $8.6 million from HUD in 2008 from the national Neighborhood Stabilization Program. 

The city was supposed to use the money to buy, refurbish and resell homes  left vacant after eviction and renovate large apartment complexes in the  city for lower-income tenants. 

When HUD IG audited how the  money was spent from 2009 to 2011 they discovered that city officials ha  awarded $2.5 million in renovation contracts without a competitive  bidding process.  Castro was in charge at the time and this is just  textbook cronyism.

The report also discovered the city misused  $1.1 million when renovating properties because some of the properties  were not put toward housing lower-income families, which is what HUD  required in exchange for the money. 

In short,  Julián Castro  is a thief and a liar with a history of misspending billions of tax payer dollars.  

And now he wants to be POTUS.
