Here's what caught my eye this AM reading the WSJ:
"U.S. senators or Senate employees received 30 loans—far more than had previously been known—under a controversial lending program at Countrywide Financial Corp. that provided cut-rate terms to favored borrowers. The information is contained in a letter sent to the Senate Select Committee on Ethics by Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), who has been spearheading the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's investigation into Countrywide's so-called VIP mortgage program."
"Mr. Issa's efforts to investigate the VIP loan program were stymied for a time by the unwillingness of the House oversight panel's chairman, New York Democrat Edolphus Towns, to issue a subpoena to Bank of America for the VIP program records. Last August, The Wall Street Journal reported that public loan documents indicated Rep. Towns had received two mortgages from the VIP program"
The knavery is endless and shameless.
Hey Voters ! Find some honest candidates and back them. Any liars, knaves ... kick them out.
