HUD Chief Builds Shrine to Himself

Alphonso Jackson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, has built a shrine to himself at HUD headquarters in Washington D.C. This is the same man who once bragged that he once canceled a contract because the contractor didn't support President Bush, and is currently under investigation for such favoritism.
Tour groups need not even go through the inviting metal detectors to admire 20 large, color photographs of the secretary, each about 2 feet by 3 feet. No fewer than five of them feature Jackson with President Bush-- in the Rose Garden, in the Oval Office, chatting together, coming down the steps at the Capitol.
