Bankers who committed bank fraud deserve to be prosecuted and sent to jail. Enforcement of the law is vital to deter such behavior in the future.
Some of America's best state attorneys general are trying do just that — trying to get justice for Americans hurt by what the FBI called an "epidemic of fraud" by America's banks and mortgage lenders that contributed to widespread economic devastation in the US.
Amazingly, officials in the Obama Administration are encouraging a deal which could insulate bankers who broke the law from investigation or prosecution. Officials in the Justice and Treasury Departments have been urging the states to support this sweetheart deal.
Please act now: Sign the petition to President Obama: Don't let banks off the hook for illegal practices that led to the housing crisis. Kill the deal and launch a federal investigation now.
