Tea Party Seeks To Save Swindled Vet's Home

The Independence Hall Tea Party Association has come to bat for Ray White, the 88-year-old World War II Army Air Corps combat veteran and South Philly resident who was swindled out of his home and possessions a few weeks ago.
He is now in a rehabilitation facility recovering from a broken hip and is looking forward to getting out, said Teri Adams of the Association.

"Because he has no housing at this time, we have been working with the VA and several Center City real estate agents to find him affordable housing," said Ms. Adams.
She says that the total dollar value of what White has lost  is $383,000.
"We have reached out to City Councilman Mark Squilla regarding whether Ray could reclaim his home. The Councilman's staff has researched this and found a way that will allow Ray to appeal and quite possibly get back his home," said Ms. Adams.
She also says that Sen.  Pat Toomey's office has found several federal benefits for White and is  standing by to work with Ray to apply for them.
The Association held a fundraiser for White yesterday, April 1, at Tazla's Restaurant & Bar in Center City.
For those who can't make the event, please write a check payable to Ray White and mail it to:
