The Lou Barletta campaign has released a statement on the recent Wall Street meltdown:
Kanjorski’s Republican opponent, however, says lack of oversight by congressional committees, including the subcommittee the Democrat congressman chairs, is part of the problem. On top of that comes what Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta calls “personal greed”
“Kanjorski is tasked with the congressional oversight of the mortgage, banking and insurance industries. But Kanjorski has taken more than $2.7 million in campaign contributions from the subprime mortgage, banking and insurance industries and Realtors – all areas he is supposed to regulate – since 1989. (www.opensecrets.org)”, claimed Barletta, in a news release.
A Democrat politician with disturbing ties to the sub-prime mortgage industry? Why, that sounds familiar.
