    Women were forced to trade sex for critical home repairs

    Live with a gas leak that could kill you and your child, or be forced to have sex with the maintenance man who can fix it? It's a horrifying scenario. But at least 19 women living in Baltimore public housing were routinely denied maintenance services for rat infestations, gas leaks, no heat, risk of electrocution, and more--unless they agreed to have sex with the city's maintenance employees.

    What's worse? Baltimore's housing commissioner, Paul Graziano, knew about the abuse, but did nothing to stop it. Residents are calling for the mayor to fire him. If we all speak out and keep this disgusting scandal in the headlines, we can make sure she does. Will you add your name?
