Sweetheart deal, or no deal

Quote:
Americans ought to be suspicious when a United States Senator such as Barack Obama, obtains a sweetheart mortgage deal," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. "We have serious concerns that Senator Obama's mortgage may have violated the law and Senate ethics rules." The group filed separate complaints with the Federal Election Commission and the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee.

The Post's Joe Stephens reported that in 2005, Obama, then a freshman Democratic senator, bought a $1.65 million restored Georgian mansion in an upscale Chicago neighborhood. To finance the purchase, he secured the loan, for $1.32 million, which was locked in at an interest rate of 5.625 percent on the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, below the average for such loans at the time in Chicago.

The loan was unusually large, known in banker lingo as a "super super jumbo." Compared to the average rate in Chicago at the time for a jumbo mortgage, Obama's deal could have saved him more than $300 per month, Stephens reported.

I heard about this the other day on one of those horrible vast right wing conspiracy radio shows. I say where there's smoke there's fire. I'd like to see the results of a criminal investigation.

gpamp should be along shortly to blast you for "regurgitating" news and to belittle you for hatin' on his commander in chief.

Chicago politics has long been a sham, and more corrupt than any other city in this country. The Dems have run Chicago since the mid-1800's, and it's always had a huge population of radicals. You can't be in politics in Chicago and be clean. Obama is dirty, and if folks would pay attention, they would ALL know it. Yes...even gpamp.
