Mississippi housing authority target of HUD discrimination probe

March 02, 1998
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is investigating to determine whether Mississippi's largest housing authority has policies that promote segregation of its housing projects. Roy Necaise, director of the Mississippi Region VIII Housing Authority, complained that the investigation was invasive and invited HUD to enlist a proctologist. "If I had my way, they would go ahead and bring one in, so we could say it was complete."
