Unfortunately, it really can get dumber than this.

-- The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has been delaying a decision for months about whether to punish the Apache ASL Trails housing complex in Tempe, Ariz., for the sin of renting 85 percent of its units to the hearing-impaired -- for whom the facility was actually designed (equipped with comfort and safety features to serve the deaf). However, HUD has threatened to withhold federal funding because Apache is suspected of illegally discriminating against the non-hearing-impaired (who under guidelines should, HUD believes, occupy three-fourths of Apache's units). State officials and Arizona's congressional delegation have voiced pride in Apache's mission, but the HUD secretary's indecisiveness has left Apache tenants in limbo, according to a September Arizona Republic report.[Arizona Republic, 9-28-2013]
