A new state audit shows the Michigan State Housing Development Authority, or MSHDA, did not screen tenants properly, allowing convicted felons to rent.
The Detroit News says the agency rented to violent criminals including drug dealers, sex offenders, and murderers.
It also reportedly kept paying the rent for tenants who were locked up, and rent for tenants who had died.
Complete names and social security numbers were also missing from many tenants' files.
The audit covers 2004 through March of 2008.
