Fox News host Sean Hannity has been linked to a group of shell companies that spent $90 million over the past decade to purchase more than 870 properties in the United States with help from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and foreclosures, the Guardian reports.

Two properties in Georgia, specifically, were funded with mortgages for $17.9 million Hannity obtained with help from HUD loans under the National Housing Act. The loans were recently increased by $5 million “with renewed support from [HUD Secretary Ben] Carson’s department,” per the Guardian.

Hannity, who was a vocal supporter of Carson to head HUD, didn’t disclose his connection with the agency when he had Carson on the show last June, the paper reported.

During that segment, Hannity praised Carson, telling him, “I know you’ve done a good job.”

Hannity also complained about the dip in home ownership, and said he liked “the idea of them owning the place,” referring to people who receive assistance from Carson’s agency.

“Well, that’s the real ideal,” said Carson.

Hannity’s real estate attorney, Christopher Reeves, told the Guardian his client’s property holdings were, “highly confidential.”

“I doubt you would find it very surprising that most people prefer to keep their legal and personal financial issues private,” Reeves told the newspaper. “Mr. Hannity is no different.”

The shell companies were registered to the offices of Henssler Financial outside Atlanta.
