"If there are any doubts that a new federal report investigating the culprits behind the financial crisis was cooked in favor of Democrats, consider its expedient acquittal of former Housing Secretary Andrew Cuomo
The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, led by Pelosi-appointed Democrat Phil Angelides, held 19 hearings in the course of its 15-month, $10 million "investigation." Yet it never called Cuomo, a well-connected Democrat, to publicly testify, even though the former HUD secretary deserved top billing on the list of suspects responsible for the subprime crime.
An honest inquiry would have grilled Cuomo about his role in mandating the reckless "affordable housing" targets that plunged HUD-regulated Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac headlong into the subprime abyss.
By whitewashing government's role in the crisis, Angelides covers not just fellow Democrat Cuomo's tracks, but also his own."http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2011/02/ ... -hook.html
