Florida Housing Finance Corp. audit: DeSantis-backed director ‘abusive’


Michael DiNapoli

JACKSONVILLE — Two weeks after Gov. Ron DeSantis reinstated the executive director of Florida’s affordable housing organization, the corporation’s board may consider disciplinary action or recommend firing the governor’s ally.

An internal inspector general’s report found sufficient evidence that Michael DiNapoli, executive director of the Florida Housing Finance Corp., engaged in inappropriate behavior by the organization’s standards that included yelling at employees, interrupting them, and threatening their job security. 

Almost 10% of the corporation’s staff, 15 employees, have left or been fired from the organization during DiNapoli’s six month tenure, but the inspector general could not be sure all exits were due to the boss’ behavior.
