Sen. Elizabeth Warren and others question lack of prosecutions for mortgage fraud

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Three Democratic lawmakers asked to discuss with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder the Department of Justice’s allegedly uneven efforts to prosecute mortgage fraud, according to a letter dated Monday.

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren and representatives Elijah Cummings and Maxine Waters are seeking an audience with Holder over a new watchdog report that said the FBI ranked mortgage fraud as a low threat after the height of the financial crisis, even though the Justice Department had said investigating that crime would be a top priority.

“This report calls into question the Department’s commitment to investigate and prosecute crimes such as predatory lending, loan modification scams, and abusive mortgage servicing practices,” the three lawmakers wrote of the report released last week by the Justice Department’s inspector general.

3. I wish there was someone like her that I could vote for

But I live in Miami and I'm stuck with Republicans and Cubans who vote Repulican (the local media here is proconservative and Cuba everything). That's why we have Marco Rubio as our senator.
