Sex cases threaten Philly housing czar's job

PHILADELPHIA - August 25, 2010

Support for veteran director Carl Greene is waning among board members who oversee the nation's fourth largest public housing agency.

The 53-year-old Greene has also faced a threatened foreclosure on his luxury home and an IRS tax lien this year.

Board chairman John Street says he had no idea the agency had settled at least four sexual-harassment complaints involving Greene.

Street, a former mayor, says he no longer presumes Greene is fit for the job.

The board will discuss Greene's 12-year tenure at private and public meetings Thursday.

Greene has taken leave through mid-September to battle stress.
