Description : Abstract
David Boeri reports that Kathy Gannett (former HUD employee) has settled a wrongful dismissal complaint against the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Boeri notes that Gannett claims that she was fired for filing a complaint with HUD against the Boston Housing Authority (BHA) for discriminatory housing policies. Boeri reports that HUD officials claim that Gannett was fired for inappropriately questioning Doris Bunte (BHA) during a meeting. Boeri interviews Gannett and Elizabeth Rogers (attorney for Gannett). Gannett talks about the case. Gannett says that her complaint against the BHA was ignored. Gannett says that she did not question Bunte inappropriately. Boeri quotes Bunte as saying that Gannett was "hostile" to her during a meeting. Boeri adds that Gannett questioned Bunte about security for minority families in white housing projects. Boeri's report includes footage from an interview with Gannett in 1987. This tape includes additional footage of Gannett.
