DC Housing Authority Determines Violation Complaints were done intentionally

From a press release:

“A report of “deplorable housing conditions” at Park Morton on a local blog has been determined to be fictitious.

The District of Columbia Housing Authority takes complaints seriously. DCHA immediately investigated a Prince of Petworth post that featured several housing violations. The claims made in the post were found to be fabricated. The blog post has since been removed from the site. Ed. Note earlier this week the post was removed at the request of the OP who at the time said he felt threatened. Nevertheless, my sincere apologies to the DC Housing Authority if the photos were indeed fabricated by the OP.

During the inspection, it was determined that the online post was submitted by an adult dependent of a Park Morton resident. That dependent admitted to causing the destruction of property and making a false report to a neighborhood website. DCHA repaired the issues.

It is DCHA’s mission is to provide quality affordable housing to extremely low- through moderate-income households while fostering communities and cultivating opportunities for residents to improve their lives.”
