Woman Says She's Paying Price For Whisteblowing
GAINESVILLE - A Gainesville woman who told authorities that her aunt was falsifying documents in her capacity as Section 8 Director with the Gainesville Housing Authority, says she is now paying the price for her good deeds.
"I just had my newborn son and now they're trying to put us on the street," Alexis Brown said.
Brown, a mother of two, says she's received four eviction notices in a five month period.
She says the latest eviction notice is because she informed workers at GHA that her aunt, former Section 8 Director Barbara Richardson, was falsifying documents.
"She was upset that I sent her new boss a packet of evidence basically reflecting on her poor management at the Gainesville Housing Authority," Brown said.
Brown says Richardson misappropiated funds to make up for the 1. 8 million dollar shortfall in GHA's budget.
The current executive director at GHA, Pam Davis, says the shortfall has been fixed by implementing two people per room.
