Remember all the hubbub over the 50 State Attorney General Investigation of the Banksters and all their mortgage fraud? Remember the famous quote from the lead attorney general Tom Millier, from Iowa..
“We’re going to put people in jail!”
And the people all stood up and cheered for Tom because for a moment, a brief flickering moment, We The People thought we actually had an advocate who was looking out for our interests. Now all that has changed. The 50 State AG investigation has…well…disappeared. Forget about talk of jail time I just want some confirmation that any resources are still being devoted to any sort of inquiry.
The truth of the matter is teams of lawyers and lobbyists and executives are having quiet meetings in statehouses and steakhouses and hell, probably a few whorehouses, and they’re explaining to the attorneys general that they cannot, they must not, they will not punish the banks, the fraudclosure mills or anyone involved in the whole crime scene that is Fraudclosuregate. The suits are not just telling the AGs to back off (that’s the stick), they’re also buying the AG’s off with gobs and gobs of campaign cash (that’s the carrot).
As we would expect, the largest beneficiary of this corruption and bribes (oops, I mean campaign contributions) is the head of the investigation (oops, I mean love fest) Tom Miller. As Matt Taibbi recently noted in Rolling Stone, the best way to raise campaign cash? Hold it….wait for it….here it comes….
Best Way to Raise Campaign Cash? Investigate the Banks!
Now as I was reading the comments, one of the readers made a very good point
Why the heck is a guy from Iowa in charge, when all the damage has been done in California, Nevada and Florida? What’s he got to be upset about? The banks didn’t ruin his state. That’s why he was chosen to conduct the cover-up, because his state felt the least amount of pain.
That comment came from a smart fella identified as Bill Andivey, scroll through the comments to Taibbi’s article then pop on over to Nekkid Capitalism for a little more analysis. The answer to Andivey’s question can only be that the whole thing was fixed from the beginning. Now as a lawyer who experiences the fraud and the crimes and the corruption first hand, every single day here in Floriduh I can only say, we know exactly why the investigation is being deep sixed.
The 50 state AG was not the only investigation that was floating around….remember that here in Floriduh the fraudclosure mills were also under investigation by Floriduh’s Attorney General? Well, one is already off the hook with an absurd $2 million dollar bribe (that amounts to a couple weeks worth of work…not a bad payoff for years worth of wrongdoing).
Take a little time to read through the Marshall-C-Watson-Assurance-of-Voluntary-Compliance now remember, NONE OF THE ALLEGATIONS OF WRONGDOING THAT ARE DETAILED ON PAGE 3 OF THE AGREEMENT HAPPENED. NO WRONGDOING OCCURRED. KEEP MOVING ALONG PEOPLE, NOTHING TO SEE HERE. KEEP REPEATING THIS OVER, AND OVER AND OVER.
This is your government hard at work. Not for you. For the banks. For the Fraudsters. For the Criminals. Forget about gangbangers and drug runners, rapists and murderers, we are now a country that is dominated by
WIDESPREAD WHITECOLLAR CRIMINAL ANARCHY
And all you gotta do to get away with it is spread a few million dollars around here in there in campaign cash to get away with it.
