Which Fannie Employees Got Those VIP Countrywide Loans?
Ranking Member of the Oversight and Government Reform Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) released a bombshell on Tuesday, indicating that Countrywide made 173 VIP loans to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac executives. But the letter (.pdf) he sent to the Federal Housing Finance Agency was a little unsatisfying, since it blacked out the names of those execs who should face consequences. Since these names were obtained through subpoena, Issa was not allowed to make the list public. But resourceful CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson managed to get many of the names. Here are the first ten (alphabetically) on the lengthy list:
Sandra Adams: Fannie Mae Account Associate
Nitirwork Armstrong: Fannie Mae Director
Gregg Ayres: Fannie Mae Customer Acct Manager
Jeffrey Baker: Fannie Mae Business Analyst
Ingrid Beckles: Freddie Mac VP Default Mgmt
Cherry Billings: Fannie Mae Asst to CEO
Christine Buckley: Fannie Mae Sr Assistant
Sharon Canavan: Fannie Mae Govt Relations/Lobbyist
Delynn Conley: Fannie Mae Underwriter
Carla Corpuz: Fannie Mae Senior Underwriter
