Check out the democrats on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac when they were warned.
Checkout the Fannie Lobbyist working for McCain:
Doug Davenport
John Davis
Doug Goodyear
And just a final question:
Why didn't the Repubs passed Fannie reform when they controlled Congress for 12 years?
There was no filibuster, there was no veto - oh forgot Bush would not have vetoed it.
It did not happen because Repubs did not want it to happen either - ask Doug and Doug.

The funniest and most concrete example that there *IS* justice in the world happened at work today.
One of the directors, a blathering "McCain is god" neo-con dimwit who actually adorned his office/cubicle with McCain-Palin bumper stickers and all sorts of neo-con paraphernalia (which is blatantly against company policy), spent the entire day yesterday bragging about how he had gone to four different polling places and voted four different times using provisional ballots, and then went to a fifth polling place in the non-English-speaking part of town to vote again under a fake name and again using a provisional ballot. He laughed out loud, in front of numerous witnesses as he told everyone how he got away with voting for McCain five times.
The laughter died down pretty quickly when Phoenix police arrived and took him away in handcuffs. Seems someone wasn't so pleased and reported him. So he was arrested for voter fraud, identity theft, and conspiracy to commit voter fraud. And since it's a federal election, all charges are felonies.
Because he was screaming about his rights, and using a high degree of profanity out loud in the workplace, on his way out, the HR Director also told him he was fired.
Now *THAT* is how things are SUPPOSED to work!
I am Obama supporter but I live in Arizona - and doubt this happen.
We are not right-wing-nuts lets not spread false rumors.
I would be very surprised if local police arrested somebody on an unproven complaint about voter fraud; in fact Repub or not I don't want police to be able to arrest people about voting without definite proof - that is how fascism starts.
This smells like a hoax. Did they carve a Mc on the guys cheek.

He confessed it repeatedly as two police officers watched and listened.

Police were alerted to someone confessing to committing voter fraud. Why wouldn't they respond? It's not like they'd have been busy arresting illegal aliens or anything.

That Newsday article is right on the money. There was nothing in it that wasn't clearly demonstrated at a Palin rally.
It takes me back to lynch mobs in the old days. And all those people consisted of religious nutjobs and gun toting hillbillies. Today is no different.
The words being spoken by candidates and supporters alike are downright disturbing to anyone who cares about America and its people.
Palin isn't the only "whackjob". The people she rallies up are whackjobs as well. They have more than proven themselves with their redneck brand actions against other people.
The Democrats don't waste their time with such nonsense.
Yeah, the Democrats never said anything mean and nasty to Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Gingrich, McCain, Palin, etc, etc. And hey, that pesky First Amendment is only for us Dems. Anybody else should just shut the hell up!

Right on my freedom loving Dem brother!

Who is Pamela Hairston

Marge9, I could not have said it better myself!
WHEN WILL THE COLOR OF ONE'S SKIN NOT MATTER IN AMERICA? WHEN OUR REAL ENEMIES SUCCEED IN DROPPING THAT NUCLEAR BOMB ON THIS GREAT COUNTRY, THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL THE COLOR OF OUR SKIN NOT MATTER BECAUSE WE WON'T HAVE ANY!!!
It appears the 60 year anniversary of the Martinsville Seven case came and went this January without a mention from most newspapers. It is a painful subject but one that ought to be commemorated by the facts. For black citizens of Martinsville, it is a source of resentment, rage and disillusionment. Few white Americans can even recall it.
Ms. Pamela A. Hairston is a relative of three of the Hairston men that were executed for the rape of a white housewife, Ms. Ruby Stroud Floyd. Ms. Floyd passed away in 1996. Although she may not have wished to become the poster girl for gang rape in the late 1940’s it might be helpful to her memory and reputation that some family come forward to defend this woman. Ms. Hairston has been trying to contact film director Spike Lee about a documentary about the Martinsville Seven case. Mr. Lee fresh from his documentary about Hurricane Katrina has not yet responded.
Reading some of the online letters at various newspapers written by Ms. Hairston, she seems to have taken the facts of the case, documented trauma of the victim, confessions from all seven men and all seven execution sentences to twist a different story. In her version, Ms. Floyd was having extramarital relations with the oldest of the convicted rapists and essentially made up her story of gang rape near the woods of a railroad track. Ms. Hairston even writes that “she was always up in the black men’s faces.” She usually ends her letters stating that “the true story of the Martinsville Seven has yet to be told.” Ms. Hairston’s claims of Mrs. Floyds dubious reputation appear to be word of mouth from the residents of the Cherrytown vicinity, people that she interviewed. On the flip side of this, after the Duke Lacrosse rape accusations first surfaced, Ms. Hairston was first to jump on the theory the men must be guilty without taking into account the character of Crystal Gail Mangum. I think America is tired of racial hypocrisy.
Ms. Floyd was a Jehovah’s witness and did her missionary work in the Cherrytown vicinity. She also was somewhat familiar with the community because she sold homegrown vegetables and second hand clothes. The day she walked to Cherrytown to collect her $6 debt she was warned by a black neighbor that she should return home because at 4pm on Friday it was getting dark and there was a lot of drinking and carrying on. Of course I am sure in retrospect she wished she would have heeded that advice.
If the execution of seven for the rape of one white woman is heinous, smearing the victim beyond the grave cannot give the outrage about these seven executions any justification. Ms. Hairston has extreme points of view, refers to herself as a black militant and in favor of slavery reparations. If one were to google Ms. Pamela A. Hairston who currently resides in Washington DC, you would see her frame of mind.
What I have read about Ms. Hairston is that she is a freelance writer for Black Essence type magazines but has a day job as an Information Research Specialist at the Library of Congress. She might be a worthy interview since she states she has compiled substantial data and articles about the case but balance should be given. Although the executions were a major civil rights case, disparaging Ms. Floyd should not be allowed and Ms. Hairston should be challenged on her public statements against her due to familial connection to three of these convicted and now deceased men not to mention the giant chip on her shoulder for hating white Americans.
