McCaskill campaign answers questions over $40 million in federal funding

(KMOV.com) -- More sparks are flying in the Missouri Senate race as Senator Claire McCaskill faces questions about her husband receiving tens of millions of dollars in federal subsidies.
News 4 has been looking into the story and reached out to both campaigns.
While Akin’s campaign didn’t seem to want to talk about it, McCaskill’s campaign came back quickly to answer where the $40 million came from and where it went.
‘This is another baseless unfounded attack by congressman akin,” said McCaskill spokeswoman Caitlin Legacki.
But the story actually came from an Associated Press investigation into federal money that went to McCaskill’s husband.
Reportedly he collected $40 million for low income housing developments that he owns—money that supplements rent for poor families.
If actions speak louder than words then Akin’s campaign said it all, by jumping on the report on Akin’s twitter page, and using it against McCaskill.

2. Did he provide housing services?

If he did provide the low income housing, then isn't the money in payment for services he actually provided? If so, why is there a problem?

And what's up with all the Dave Spence ads, when he hardly ran any all summer. Influx of cash?
