Clayton Morris, a former Fox News co-host, is accused of selling novice investors uninhabitable rental properties.
I remember watching a couple of Clayton’s Periscope videos a few years back (about the time his wife Natali was leaving C|Net and the Buzz Out Loud podcast) and thinking he was a bit too credulous and even “off” at the time. I really couldn’t tell what he was selling at the time except for himself. This story doesn’t surprise me in the least. The piece overall is some tremendously interesting and solid journalism.
A quick Google search on “Clayton Morris” shows that this scandal hasn’t caught up with him. Only about two hits in the top twenty mention this issue, so he could potentially be profiting from his alleged scheme.
