Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson accused House Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) of hypocrisy on homelessness today in a blistering letter charging her with lacking “basic manners.”
“My mother always taught me that people shouldn’t throw rocks, especially while they live in a glass house,” Carson wrote, according to a copy of the letter obtained by POLITICO. “Because of that wise lesson, I was a little surprised to read your hostile letter to President Trump regarding the record number of homeless Americans in California, particularly in your district.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Waters had written Trump on Oct. 28 demanding answers on reports that the administration is mulling moving homeless people off the streets in California.
In her letter to Trump, Waters wrote, “Your shamelessness knows no bounds.”
In his letter to Waters, Carson harshly rebuked her. He wrote: “Indeed, shamelessness exists in Washington. Shamelessness is a career politician of 30 years laying blame. Shamelessness is allowing more than 55,000 Americans to live on the very streets they represent. Shamelessness is allowing anyone other than a biological female into a battered women’s shelter.”
Carson said he had sent multiple letters to Waters and requested numerous meetings, “but each time you’ve refused. Basic manners elude you and it seems that instead of producing results, you’re more interested in producing cheap headlines at the President’s expense – like a true career politician. Unfortunately, those homeless men and women don’t have that same luxury.”
“To me, the most compassionate, obvious, and logical solution would be to get as many homeless Americans off the streets — with a roof over their heads — as soon as humanly possible,” Carson said in his letter to Waters.
