- Instead of being taken seriously about what I saw was going on, I was called jealous and bitter.
(Like the other emails to his management and other program directors, I did not post these until I realized that they were not taking me seriously and Maxine Waters reminded me to speak my truth and not be intimated.)

Attached is the email he forwarded to me with her response to the questions that all have to answer prior to being interviewed to live in the house.
