The mission of the Center for Public Integrity is to produce original investigative journalism about significant public issues to make institutional power more transparent and accountable. Here are two stories added recently:

• Digital mammography may not be any better at detecting breast cancer than film-based systems, but Medicare is spending millions of taxpayer dollars reimbursing the procedure.

• HUD-funded housing projects wasted money on belly dancers, sex offenders and dead residents.

•Neil Barofsky, the Troubled Asset Relief Program special inspector general, says in an interview that the government has sown the seeds for a future financial crisis.
