Chicago news conference February 28th: Illinois U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin questions SEC hiring of Deutsche Bank “foreclosure monster”

February 28, 2009

Andy Martin unwinds a major attack on predatory foreclosure lawyers when he demands answers from the SEC as to why a “foreclosure monster” who supervised Deutsche bank’s litigation terrorism against thousands of victimized homeowners was hired to direct the Division of Enforcement. “That’s like putting Willy Sutton in charge of bank regulation,” says Martin. Martin, a legendary Illinois corruption fighter, promises an aggressive anti-corruption campaign for the U. S. Senate. Martin is the Executive Editor of ContrarianCommentary.com and the author of Obama: The Man Behind The Mask. “Forget Roland Burris and all the other Republican ‘pretenders,’” says the crusading candidate. “I am a going to fight to get to the U. S. Senate. They need a real corruption fighter in Washington, not another political windbag.”

CORRUPTION FIGHTER MARTIN SET TO ROLL OUT A NATIONWIDE ANTI-CORRUPTION EFFORT WITH SAN DIEGO NEWS CONFERENCE ON MARCH 5TH

ANDY MARTIN, ONE OF AMERICA’S FINEST INVESTIGATIVE COLUMNISTS, DEVELOPED THE KHUZAMI STORY FOR CONTRARIANCOMMENTARY.COM

(CHICAGO)(February 28, 2009) Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin kicks off his U. S. Senate campaign with a Chicago news conference Saturday, February 28th exposing a potentially major scandal at the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, where he charges that SEC Chair Mary Schapiro hired a “foreclosure monster” from Deutsche Bank, who filed thousands of harassing lawsuits against victimized homeowners, to be Director of Enforcement.

Martin serves as the Executive Editor of ContrarianCommentary.com and developed the Khuzami story for his Internet newspaper.

“This is reform?” demands Martin? “Hiring a monster like Robert Khuzami to head the Enforcement Division reeks of callous disregard for Khuzami’s history of malicious and frivolous litigation in courts across the United States.

“In the announcement of Khuzami’s appointment, the SEC stated:

http://www.sec.gov/news/press/2009/2009-31.htm

Since 2004, Mr. Khuzami, 52, has been General Counsel for the Americas at Deutsche Bank. In that role, he has supervised more than 100 lawyers supporting the bank’s various businesses in the Americas, and has overseen Americas-based litigation and regulatory enforcement actions. From 2002 to 2004, he served as Global Head of Litigation and Regulatory Investigations for the bank.

“Well,” Martin says, “Deutsche Bank filed tens of thousands of malicious foreclosure lawsuits, apparently all under Khuzami’s supervision and direction, and the bank was sanctioned by federal judges in Ohio for abusing the judicial system. Khuzami kept filing malicious lawsuits even after repeated warnings from judges that questioned his tactics:

“Appointing Khuzami was an egregious error in judgment by the SEC. No one with Khuzami’s record of abusing the judicial process and terrorizing helpless homeowners should be ‘rewarded’ with a high government appointment. Did anyone in the Obama administration ‘vet’ Khuzami? Do we have another ‘vetting’ scandal?

“Khuzami’s conduct was so abusive and outrageous that Deutsche Bank issued directions to disassociate the bank from the legal firestorm being pursued by the bank. In other words, Khuzami was directed to walk around with a paper bag on his dead due to the notorious litigation he had unleashed.

“In Florida, Deutsche Bank was rated as the most litigious financial institution:

“The City of Cleveland apparently sued Deutsche Bank for foreclosure abuses, all under Khuzami’s direction and supervision:

“In Kansas City, it was the same story:

of-foreclosed-properties-deutsche-bank-
lets-the-city-rot/

“According to a story on FoxBusiness.com, Khuzami-the-foreclosure-fiend targeted minorities with his dastardly schemes. Now he is promoted by Barack Obama? For shame!

http://www.foxbusiness.com/story/markets/industries/finance/mfi-miami-investigates-illegal-foreclosures-deutsche-bank/#

“I do not question that Khuzami may be a competent attorney. Apparently he is. But he lacks the judgment and understanding, as documented by Deutsche Bank’s terrorist litigation tactics, to run a major part of a critical government agency. Another word for ‘targeting minorities’ is racism. Obama has appointed a racist litigator to a senior post in his administration. If this is Barack Obama’s idea of ‘reform,’ then he’s way off base,” Martin charges.

Andy Martin, famous in Illinois as an aggressive campaigner, is the “Republican-to-beat” in the 2010 Illinois U. S. Senate primary.
