President Fuck You's Iowa stooge tells New York AG to fuck off.
N.Y. bumped from 50-state foreclosure committee
By Brady Dennis, Published: August 23
Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who is leading foreclosure settlement negotiations with the nation’s largest banks on behalf of all 50 states, abruptly removed New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman from the coalition’s executive committee Tuesday, saying he had “actively worked to undermine” the group’s efforts in recent months.
Miller did not speak with Schneiderman before he sent word about the decision. Rather, Iowa assistant Attorney General Patrick Madigan e-mailed counterparts around the country just before 1 p.m. announcing that New York had been booted from the key group of states overseeing the negotiations, “effective immediately.”
Schneiderman showed no sign of backing down, however:
In a statement, spokesman Danny Kanner said Schneiderman remains “committed to a comprehensive resolution” to all mortgage abuses and that “ongoing investigations by attorneys general cannot be shut down by efforts to settle quickly.” He said Miller’s decision would not prevent Schneiderman from continuing “to be an active voice on these issues as a part of the 50-state coalition and in other forums.”
Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden praised Schneiderman for continuing “to raise important and legitimate concerns about the scope of the releases being demanded by the banks.”
So yeah, I'd call that "doing it in the road."
