A lead poisoning lawsuit against the New York City Housing Authority is exposing that the city may have been POISONING poor kids for decades. And NYC authorities may have lied to federal regulators to cover it up.
A Brooklyn mom named Sherron Paige lives in the Red Hook Housing projects in Brooklyn. She has an adorable son named Kyan - who was poisoned by lead in their NYCHA apartment in the Red Hook East apartments.
He tested positive at the age of 4 with a blood reading that's was 2 points above the city's old loose standard and seven points above the stricter federal standard.
Sherron is a party to one has recently filed the lawsuits filed against NYCHA over the poisoning. Earlier this month, a Manhattan judge rejected NYC Mayor de Blasio’s effort to wiggle out of a lawsuit that seeks to hold him responsible for the lead-paint scandal rocking the city’s public housing authority.
Judge William Pauley ruled that de Blasio must face the suit alleging that NYCHA poisoned children through repeated failures to fix dangerous lead-paint conditions in its apartments and then lied to federal regulators about required inspections.
This scandal may RIVAL the one in FLINT.
