Where’s Keith Olbermann? I’ve found the worst people in the world for today. They are The Illinois Bankers Association. These monstrous bastards are using threatening legal language to bully Sheriff Thomas Dart because he’s refusing to do their dirty work. Dart is fed up with eviction situations catching residents unaware. Renters have been evicted even though they have paid their rent to landlords. Legally, mortgage
companies are supposed to investigate these “nuances.”
Sheriff Dart says, enough:
These mortgage companies only see pieces of paper, not people, and don’t care who’s in the building. They simply want their money and don’t care who gets hurt along the way…On top of it all, they want taxpayers to fund their investigative work for them. We’re not going to do their jobs for them anymore. We’re just not going to evict innocent tenants. It stops today.”
Those siphoning their livelihood off human tragedy, that is the Illinois Bankers Association, say the sheriff is practicing “vigilantism” and, get this, “marshall law.” (I know, this from the people who didn’t even read the Cliff Notes for Grapes of Wrath.) It’s “marshall law” if they don’t get paid.
Dart wants the judiciary or the state Legislature to establish protections for those most vulnerable in the mortgage crisis.
In Cook County foreclosures are expected to exceed 43,000 this year.
