Well, it seems as if the one qualification Dr. Ben Carson had to be HUD secretary is actually not true.
The New York Times issued a correction Monday after saying that Carson aide Armstrong Williams originally told the paper that Carson was raised in public housing.
“Using information from a close friend of Ben Carson, the nominee for housing secretary, an earlier version of this article misstated that Mr. Carson spent part of his childhood in public housing,” the Times wrote. “The friend, Armstrong Williams, said Monday that Mr. Carson had never lived in government housing.”
That leaves him with what? He passed HUD housing on his way to the office?
