Let the Games Begin … SEC Charges Former FANNIE MAE & FREDDIE MAC Execs with Securities Fraud

And so it begins … A bit delayed, but better late than never.

The SEC, Securities & Exchange Commission,has charged six former executives of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac with securities fraud. Get ready for the Enron of the 2010′s. Those who committed fraud and deception upon the people of the United States may finally be held accountable. However, as stated at Michelle Malkin.com, there seem to be some missing from the list … where is former Fannie Mae head and Clinton/Obama pal Franklin Raines?

The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged six former top executives of the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) with securities fraud, alleging they knew and approved of misleading statements claiming the companies had minimal holdings of higher-risk mortgage loans, including subprime loans. [...]

Three former Fannie Mae executives — former Chief Executive Officer Daniel H. Mudd, former Chief Risk Officer Enrico Dallavecchia, and former Executive Vice President of Fannie Mae’s Single Family Mortgage business, Thomas A. Lund — were named in the SEC’s complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

The SEC also charged three former Freddie Mac executives — former Chairman of the Board and CEO Richard F. Syron, former Executive Vice President and Chief Business Officer Patricia L. Cook, and former Executive Vice President for the Single Family Guarantee business Donald J. Bisenius — in a separate complaint filed in the same court.
