How Obama Stole Dubuque: Local and Federal Officials Respond
by STANLEY KURTZ
January 15, 2016

On Wednesday I told the story of Obama’s outrageous takeover of housing policy in Dubuque, the most frightening example yet of how the administration’s new Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule will actually work. Today’s Dubuque Telegraph Herald features a story on the reaction of local and federal officials to my account. Bottom line: they’re angry about the piece but refuse to provide any evidence that it’s mistaken. Dubuque City Manager Mike Van Milligen says “the city will not respond to the author’s opinions,” but claims my story is a mere blog post containing inaccuracies. So Millgen says my story is inaccurate, but he refuses to explain what’s mistaken. Meanwhile, HUD’s lead spokesman, Brian Sullivan, dismisses my article as “apocalyptic,” without explaining why it’s wrong. Fortunately, the Telegraph Herald gave me a chance to respond to charges of political bias. If this is the best HUD can do to parry claims of federal overreach, they are in serious trouble once the country gets wind of the truth about AFFH.
