Federal Inspectors General and the Paths to Accountability

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


No story did more to raise the visibility of the federal inspectors general (IGs) than the 1989 HUD scandal. * The Housing and Urban Development IG was in the papers almost daily, whether revealing new details about "Robin HUD," testifying before Congress about $300,000 consultants, such as former Interior Secretary James Watt, who had used their influence to win housing projects for high-priced clients; or continuing the investigation of the apparent political slush fund that operated out of the HUD secretary's office. Suddenly, the IG was frontpage news.
