Meanwhile Attorney Burnside is always happy to see me! He is at the moment on the losing end of Schiavone v. MERS et al. up in Whatcom County.
23 September Update: My letter to City Council reads as follows..... The City Auditor has rejected the Marie McDonnell investigative findings even as she has found problem in indexing MERS documents and a host of other problems that we industry professionals have been dealing with for years. My point today is to highlight not only the full RFP process and contract -- which called for a presentation by Marie McDonnell that we need to schedule today -- but to inquire of any and all specific movements by any Councilor to protect homeowners from any kinds of foreclosure or mortgage abuse since they appeared at my forum and at Jane Mair's house two (2) years ago with big promises. I helped Ms. Mair sign her loan modification papers, by the way (video).
I have a homeowner with Wells Fargo on a second mortgage where they have two allonges one specifically indorsed and one in blank to suit their ever changing moods just like NY Bankruptcy Judge Robert Drain said about them in a scathing opinion last year. To make matters worse they then submitted a Lost Note Affidavit from a guy who was a pimple-faced kid selling mass-produced jewelry at Zale's at the time my clients allegedly signed their mortgage documents.
I came before you last week to commend you for allowing my cameras in the Recorder of Deeds and everywhere else, unlike Delaware where they have that crooked Judge Robert B. Young (noted below) lying about the law and denying my First Amendment challenges, but in the end you're not supposed to be just better than Delaware. That doesn't take much. Your challenge is to be Seattle, and all that Seattle is supposed to be. And you can't do that with feet of clay. With banks, you have to fix the animal in the eye with a masterful gaze, instead of kowtowing to them. This is particularly true with WF and Wachovia, as they along with Citibank have a history of aiding and abetting Mexican drug money laundering (Citi story here) see below including the $160M consent judgment against Wachovia. Ms. McDonnell told me yesterday "these institutions are not serving humanity," and she's right.
Some folks who are interviewing me tomorrow told me I give good theater. That may be true but that is rather easy when my mise en scene is the apocalyptic destruction of America's middle class. This is Greek Comedy at its highest.
22 September Update: On phone call with Marie McDonnell. I am not going to get into the substance of this conversation until a later date but I will say that she and I both believe that this information needs to be public and hosted on a City website, no ifs, ands or buts. She too agrees with me that there could be penalties civil and/or criminal.
And she looks forward to a public powerpoint presentation by her and her partners before City Council... as per her Contract. Now that the Report is being made public we need to schedule that before election day. From today's short video interview she asks:
"Is it tolerable in a free society to have the playing field vertically stacked against the consumer... these institutions are not serving humanity."

Ladies and Gentlemen: Our friend Marie McDonnell did the audit after years of persuasion by Karen Pooley and many members of the community years before I ever arrived on the scene to host a housing forum you will see portion of later in this video. But first you will see how the city is not being proactive in the face of ongoing lawlessness noted in the McDonnell are in this excellent article, and you will see the striking school teachers looking for money that they are rightfully owed, and you will see and hear some of the counselors' viewpoints on the state of foreclosure abuse, and then you will see and hear my comments this year, an entire year after I told them we owe the children an audit because the monies generated from proper recording fees and correction of other malfeasance will free up monies throughout the area.
