Blumenthal calls on DOJ to investigate privately managed military housing
from The Day
U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., recently visited privately managed military housing near the Naval Submarine Base on Wednesday to see firsthand the health and safety issues that military families in Groton, and across the country, have raised about their living situations. Afterward, he held a roughly hourlong forum, where about 10 families aired their grievances — a small number of the 1,041 military families living in homes managed by Balfour Beatty. Blumenthal has called on the secretaries of the military services to do a "thorough review" of all contracts with private housing companies and to refer any fraudulent activity by these companies to the Department of Justice for criminal or civil investigation. The day before his visit to Groton, Blumenthal wrote a letter to the DOJ asking the department to investigate "potential fraudulent activity" by these housing companies.
