Southern Illinois Congressman Wants Criminal Charges In Cairo Housing Mess 

(Washington, DC)  — Southern Illinois Congressman Mike Bost says he wants the former leaders at the Alexander County Housing Authority charged with a crime.  Bost yesterday asked Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson if charges will be coming but says he was told that decision isn’t for HUD.  Bost and Carson met yesterday to talk about the next step for the folks living in Cairo’s decrepit public housing complexes.  Some have already moved and the rest will be moved soon.
