As much as the nomination of Pamela Hughes Patenaude is being gloriously praised by the housing industry, a deep look into some of her alleged past activities involving Richard Mallory and the San Francisco Housing Authority raises some concerns, as well as her out-right enthusiastic financial support of the right-wing fascist Republican Party!

Trump regime nominates Pamela Hughes Patenaude to be Deputy Secretary of HUD

By Lynda Carson - April 28, 2017

The trump regime has announced its intent to nominate Pamela Hughes Patenaude to be Deputy Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), under HUD Secretary Ben Carson.

In response, the National Low-income Housing Coalition is thrilled of Trump’s nomination of Pamela Patenaude as deputy secretary of HUD, and congratulates her at a time the Trump regime proposes to cut $6.2 billion from HUD.

In another response, the National Fair Housing Alliance applauds the appointment of Pamela Patenaude as deputy secretary of HUD, as well as Housing Wire glowingly praised the nominee, and the National Association of Home Builders commends the choice of Pamela Patenaude to become the next HUD deputy secretary.

A bio of Pamela Patenaude reveals that she is experienced in housing issues and has worked at HUD under former HUD Secretary Mel Martinez, and under disgraced former HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson.

Pamela Patenaude made the news back in 2002 while working for HUD for allegedly attacking whistle blower Richard Malory, and for allegedly being in the thick of a housing scandal, and for allegedly being involved in a coverup of some alleged shady activities involving the San Francisco Housing Authority, as was reported in the SF Chronicle.

Despite the fact that it is common knowledge that Mitt Romney and the Republican Party wants to destroy or eliminate HUD, Pamela Patenaude of Vienna, Virginia, is a staunch supporter of Republicans and their right-wing fascist activities.

In 2016 Pamela Patenaude contributed to the Republican political campaigns of Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee, Right To Rise a PAC supporting Jeb Bush, Georgians for Isakson, and the Rich Ashooh Committee.

In 2004, Pamela Patenaude made political contributions to the Republican campaigns of Mel Martinez for the Senate, and to the notorious right-wing fascist Bush-Cheny team.

As much as the nomination of Pamela Hughes Patenaude is being gloriously praised by the housing industry, a deep look into some of her alleged past activities involving Richard Mallory and the San Francisco Housing Authority raises some concerns, as well as her out-right enthusiastic financial support of the right-wing fascist Republican Party.
