Connecting the dots through Spitzer
Predatory Lenders’ Partners in Crime: How the Bush Administration Stopped the States from Stepping in to Help Consumers (Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer in Washington Post via Global Research 3/14/08)
GR: “The following oped by Eliot Spitzer was published barely a month prior to the unfolding scandal and his demise as Governor of the State of New York. Does the scandal bear any relationship to Spitzer’s intent to reveal the criminal nature of the subprime mortgage scam and the role of the Bush adminstration. Was the scandal intended to silence Eliot Spitzer?”
“When history tells the story of the subprime lending crisis and recounts its devastating effects on the lives of so many innocent homeowners, the Bush administration will not be judged favorably. The tale is still unfolding, but when the dust settles, it will be judged as a willing accomplice to the lenders who went to any lengths in their quest for profits. So willing, in fact, that it used the power of the federal government in an unprecedented assault on state legislatures, as well as on state attorneys general and anyone else on the side of consumers.” (Eliot Spitzer, former Governor of the State of New York)

United States of Amnesia: What about Cheney’s Prostitute? (OpEdNews 3/11/08
EXCERPT: “How soon we forget the blockbuster ABC News scoop that was – and then wasn’t – much bigger and more explosive then Governor Spitzer’s, because it alleged Dick Cheney was a client. In fact, when the news broke, Bush’s “AIDS Czar” Randall Tobias, a former Eli Lilly top exec, resigned in shame. He should have stalled a bit like Louisiana Senator David Vitter did – the story was going to be killed, according to Wayne Madsen who named the ABC employee that pulled the plug after White House pressure.”
