WHY ARE REPRESENTATIVES NOT SPEAKING OUT?
Unlike Former Congressman Grayson, Representatives have taken the easy and quiet road against
the Criminal Activities of Wall Street and the Banksters. Public Officials are not representing the
interest of the People by not speaking out against the Corruption and Criminal Acts perpetuated
against every American Family. Real Estate Fraud has affected everyone, there are no exceptions,
Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Independents. So, my questions remains the same,
"Why are Representatives not Speaking Out?"
GRAYSON REQUESTS HALT TO FORECLOSURES
Congressman Alan Grayson (FL-8) has requested that the Florida Supreme Court halt all foreclosures involving three firms under investigation for document fraud. In a letter to Chief Justice Charles Canady, dated September 20, 2010, Congressman Grayson highlights the issue of illegal foreclosures.
In the letter, Congressman Grayson wrote, “Taking someone’s home should not be done lightly. And it should certainly be done in accordance with the law.”
Three foreclosure mills – the Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson, Shapiro & Freeman, and the Law Offices of David J. Stern – constitute roughly 80% of all foreclosure proceedings in Florida. All three are under investigation by the Attorney General of Florida. “I respectfully request that you abate all foreclosures involving these firms until the Attorney General … has finished his investigation of those firms,” Congressman Grayson requested of Chief Justice Canady.
The Congressman’s letter highlights a foreclosure case in Jacksonville, which a judge dismissed with prejudice. In the ruling, the judge excoriated Chase, WAMU, and Shapiro and Fishman for document fraud on the court. In the case, Chase attempted to foreclose on a home, when it did not actually hold the mortgage note.
A recent New York Times story exposes the foreclosure mills in Florida, and the high-speed foreclosure process underway in some parts of the state. Several news reports discuss rampant and widespread practices of document fraud and forgery. Members of the Congressman’s staff spoke with multiple foreclosure specialists and attorneys in Florida who confirm the reports. “If the reports I am hearing are true, the illegal foreclosures taking place represent the largest seizure of private property ever attempted by banks and government entities. This is lawlessness,” said Congressman Grayson.
