The Daily Kos has the article Three Democrats seek audience with Eric Holder over FBI’s making mortgage fraud a low priority. Who do you suppose is one of those three Democrats?
Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland and Rep. Maxine Waters of California, all Democrats, sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder Monday expressing their “deep concern” about an investigative report released last week that concluded the FBI placed mortgage fraud as its lowest priority for criminal investigations.
It’s not exactly the first time anyone has called into question the lack of criminal prosecutions of mortgage fraud, but this is the highest-placed source of such an accusation so far.
The comment to Eric Holder that I added with my signature said that he should look at the record of prosecutions after the Savings and Loan crisis, and then try to explain his own record to me.
Don’t let Eric Holder get away with asking you to look at how much effort and money he is putting into this, nor his recent record compared to his earlier record. Take a look at the prosecutions after the Savings and Loan Crisis and compare to current results.
