A timeline of Baltimore Housing Authority's scandal-filled past few months

Today, City Paper published a comprehensive investigation into the Housing Authority of Baltimore City's usage of funds as many residents report deteriorating conditions in the city's public housing. Before last night, when Commissioner Paul Graziano pledged in a City Council meeting to hire more staff, the housing authority has said it doesn't have the money to make all the necessary repairs.

The Housing Authority has long been a struggling agency, but its current set of public-relations disasters first started building back in July, when a story in the Afro reported on the poor state of the city's Gilmor Homes housing project and hinted workers withheld repairs for sexual favorites, which is now the subject of a lawsuit. Below is a comprehensive timeline of events summarizing the Housing Authority's recent public problems.
