AP: FBI Investigating Missouri Housing Deals

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The director of Missouri's housing agency confirms he has been interviewed by the FBI as part of an investigation related to low-income housing projects.
Pete Ramsel is executive director of the Missouri Housing Development Commission, which uses tax credits and tax-free bonds to help finance affordable housing.
Ramsel told The Associated Press on Friday that he was interviewed by the FBI last year about housing development issues.
He says the questions related to activities that happened more than a year ago, but he declined to elaborate.
A spokesman for state Treasurer Clint Zweifel, who recently became chairman of the commission, says Ramsel informed Zweifel of the FBI investigation earlier this month.
