And the Illegal Foreclosures Keep On Coming

The foreclosure mills and robo-signers have disappeared from the headlines, but they’re still going on with a vengeance. Fake signatures, employees signing foreclosure documents they haven’t even looked at, homeowners being railroaded and deprived of due process — you name it, it’s still happening.

County officials in three states have received thousands of mortgage documents with “questionable” signatures over the last few months. One name — Linda Green, whoever that is or was — has turned up on 1.300 documents in dozens of different signature styles.

When caught red-handed, these foreclosure mill scumbags generally react with that phony “shock” and “bewilderment” that seems to work like a charm for large corporations. “Oh. Huh. I thought we fixed that.”

Funny how you can commit a crime that ruins thousands of people’s lives and then wriggle out of any legal consequences just by acting befuddled. Imagine if an individual could pull that off with petty crimes.

“Marijuana? Officer, I had no idea. Somebody gave it to me; I thought it was a cigarette.”

“Shoplifting? Huh, I thought I paid for that already. No biggie, just tell me how much I owe and I’ll pay it and be on my way.”

And now, Mortgage-gate segues into the many faces of Mitt Romney. One of Mitt Romney’s personalities said:

“We’ve got housing prices continuing to decline, and we have foreclosures at record levels. This president has failed.”

One of Mitt Romney’s other personalities has accepted over $100,000 from one T. Martin Fiorentino Jr. This is the same
T. Martin Fiorentino Jr. who has lobbied frantically against legislation to crack down on predatory lending. Fiorentino has lobbied on behalf of Lender Processing Services, which has been one of the ringleaders of the robo-signing scandal.

If Romney had just 3 more personalities he would be even with the president.

Like I said, Romney has more sides than a geodesic dome. Obviously, some of them are crooked.

The abuses by big banks, foreclosure mills and so-called reconciliation services that rip people off by doing, half doing or not even doing things people can do for themselves — or at least should be able to do for themselves — get shut down, with harsh legal consequences to follow.

It would help if Obama would tell his attorney general this is an area where we need to look backward, not forward, and to get off his butt and start going after the slimewads.

I'm sick of all these robots. Someone needs to take Skynet out.

I don't think Romney will make it to the national ballot. He's already been called a non-Christian by FOX(R).

The Resistance has been terminated.

SW: That would certainly be nice if corporate criminals would suffer harsh legal consequences. And Eric Holder can get off his butt and start going after the slimewads any time now.

Randal: When robots have taken over the world, you'd better hope they don't see your comment.

Dave: He's a Mormon and he's done too much flipflopping. He doesn't stand a chance.
