Via press release from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi:
“Dr. Ben Carson is a disconcerting and disturbingly unqualified choice to lead a department as complex and consequential as Housing and Urban Development. Our country deserves a HUD Secretary with the relevant experience to protect the rights of homeowners and renters, particularly in low income and minority communities, and to ensure that everyone in our country can have access to safe and affordable housing without facing discrimination or homelessness. There is no evidence that Dr. Carson brings the necessary credentials to hold a position with such immense responsibilities and impact on families and communities across America.”
Dr. Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon. Nancy Pelosi is a two-bit political hack. Who is she to stand in judgement of Dr. Carson's qualifications? pic.twitter.com/wL5FQ1C3AR

Ben Carson is first HUD Sec to have actually lived in gov't housing. Fancy Nancy Pelosi says he's not qualified; is she racist or just dumb?
