“It is appalling that someone’s home could be illegally seized by big banks but not surprising. My opponent the former banking lobbyist Steve Stivers knows a lot about that because he helped create the environment that led to this mess. The same industry that fed on predatory lending for their own greed is shamelessly disregarding the law and they must be stopped. My constituents and I are demanding accountability, a moratorium on foreclosures and Congressional and DOJ investigations.” — Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy
Mary Jo Kilroy has been speaking out early and often about the greatest banking fraud scandal in American history. Unlike virtually every national Republican, she and other fighting Democrats came out swinging against these fraud merchants from the moment it became clear that banks and mortgage companies were so corrupt and inept that they were foreclosing on homes they didn’t even own. (That’s also known as stealing.)
Kilroy’s opponent Steve Stivers will never stand up to these interests. Helping average people fight against powerful corporations goes against everything he believes in. After all, he belongs to a party that has been struck dumb in the face of this massive foreclosure fraud, so compromised by their ties to big business and Wall Street that they can’t even speak up for average Americans whose homes are literally being stolen out from under them.
Progressive Democrats like Mary Jo Kilroy are the ones out in front, asking for answers, demanding accountability while Republicans are doing everything they can to protect the banks.
If you want someone who isn’t afraid to take on the big corporate interests, someone who isn’t afraid to take on entrenched political power, who isn’t afraid … period, you’ll vote for Mary Jo Kilroy. She’s got your back. Won’t you get hers?
