The Florida Legislature Raids Attorney General Settlement Funds…(Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.)

First, a little sarcasm….

Next, the sick reality of what we all knew was going to come:

TALLAHASSEE “” Attorney General Pam Bondi praised Florida House Republicans last week after they unveiled a plan to spend $200 million from a national mortgage settlement on a variety of affordable housing needs for those hardest hit by the foreclosure crisis.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you for putting this money back where it was meant to go,” Bondi told members of the House budget committee.

Lost amid all the back-slapping, however, is that House Republicans are planning to strip an equal amount for housing aid “” $200 million “” from a separate trust fund so that it could be spent on other priorities, such as teacher raises and health care. In effect, they are swapping out what the state already had set aside for affordable housing while claiming they are spending more on it

TAMPA TIMES

    They are no better than the Cypress Bankers. ThE MONEY FROM THIS SETTLEMENT IS SUPPOSED TO GO TO THE HOMEOWNERS–NOT SOOME POLITICAL SCHEME TO USE THIS MONEY FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT. Help the poor homeowners? I don’t think so. This money needs to go DIRECTLY TO THE HOMEOWNERS WHO WERE FORCLOSED ON. HOW DARE THEY???

They were supposed to get this money.

    I am preparing to file a Class Action Lawsuit against the 15th Judicial Circuit Court, State of Florida, all Foreclosure Judges since 2008, all law firms that represented the banks, et. al

    We the People have had enough!!!

    Would the Judges, Attorney Generals, State Attorneys, Attorneys (foreclosure mills)representing banks individually enjoy being served with Summons and Complaint for Foreclosure? I think Not it is time overdue that this fiasco Stop, the Corruption Stop, the Greed Stop right here and right now!!!

    Justice and Righteousness Will Prevail!
