Emergency removal imminent of Navajo housing officials who were subject of ‘Republic’ investigation

Mismanagement, waste, corruption plague Navajo Housing Authority

Congress and HUD also scrutinize Navajo Housing Authority for alleged mismanagement of federal tax dollars

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye is poised to sign emergency legislation passed last week that would remove and replace the tribal housing agency’s board of commissioners.

After the measure passed on a 16-4 vote of the Navajo Nation Council, Begaye said, “Many of our people live in dilapidated homes or have taken refuge living in mobile storage units. Because of the housing situation, they are subject to conditions that no one should live in. This must be changed.”

The emergency bill passed Friday after most board members of the troubled Navajo Housing Authority refused demands to step down, and instead issued a letter defending their agency and criticizing Begaye.
