Fraudclosuregate was not caused by attorneys defending homeowners, The Constitution, our courts and our judges. Fraudclosuregate was caused by polluted, flawed and fatally corrupt industries and business models. They created bad paper and bad business when they started with all these loans in 200-2007 that led to the subprime collapse in 2008.
