I have been concerned that a “global settlement” on the mortgage fraud issue would undermine the few hard fought gains won in recent legislation. It would leave tens of thousands without justice and do nothing to get the big banks to abide by trade offs of modifications for trillions of federal money (bailout, federal reserve, and Fannie and Freddie bailout). It is an outrage, but Governor Markell says let bygones be bygones. I know who is looking out for the people and who put them on the back burner. I am not objecting to the idea of a settlement, but I am objecting to one that is 90% about covering up crimes that haven’t even been investigated.
