Back at the beginning of July, this blog lamented numerous inconsistencies and the lack of transparency in the City-sponsored New Orleans Affordable Housing program, as investigated by Karen Gadbois of Squandered Heritage. Last night, Lee Zurik of WWL TV presented the results of his own investigation into the matter. Interviewees include Karen and Recovery Czar, Ed Blakely. As usual, the principal architects of New Orleans recovery wash their hands off the matter while City Council promises to investigate shortly. Go, Karen and Lee, for this wonderful example of cooperation between online activism and traditional media!
