IA AG Tom Miller: Playing “Survivor” with Homeowners’ Futures

You may have heard that the Obama Administration and IA Attorney General are playing a giant game of Survivor with the homes of struggling Americans as the grand prize: they’ve kicked NY AG Eric Schneiderman off the island.

The New York Attorney General’s office was removed from a group of state attorneys general that is working on a nationwide foreclosure settlement with U.S. banks, according to a state official.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has raised concern about terms of a possible deal, was removed from the executive committee of state attorneys general, according to an e-mail today from Iowa Assistant Attorney General Patrick Madigan.

Only they made a key mistake in their little game of Survivor.

Update: I obviously misread IA Asst AG Patrick Madigan and IL AG Lisa Madigan. Meaning Miller’s the one making this public, not AG Madigan.

Well then I guess he’s just being a dick.

Update: Wow, in the longer version of the Bloomberg story, Miller gets even more dickish:

“New York has actively worked to undermine the very same multistate group that it had spent the previous nine months working very closely with,” Miller said. For a member of the executive committee, that “simply doesn’t make sense, is unprecedented and is unacceptable,” Miller said.

[And I removed my earlier screwup.]

bmaz @ThePlumLineGS @rickhasen @danieljpayne Yes, sadly, this is exactly right. There are very legitimate 1A concerns.

emptywheel @flyryan And was it ineffective bc not enough like NTOC or too close to offense? @Susan_Hennessey @ncweaver @henryfarrell

emptywheel @flyryan Which, I assume, is why @Susan_Hennessey used it. But does that also mean IAD ineffective? @ncweaver @henryfarrell

emptywheel @flyryan Is the arg that IAD wasn't effective so it all needs to be NTOC? But doesn't that beg Q? @Susan_Hennessey @ncweaver @henryfarrell

emptywheel @flyryan Right. I'm asking why we had to move all defense to that model. @Susan_Hennessey @ncweaver @henryfarrell

emptywheel @flyryan Nothing's in IAD anymore per @Susan_Hennessey. It's Operations. But she used it as proof of value of merger @ncweaver @henryfarrell

emptywheel @Susan_Hennessey You can't do a merger like that and claim NSA will "enhance" cybersecurity. It's not its job. @henryfarrell @ncweaver

emptywheel @Susan_Hennessey Why wasn't having NTOC enough? Why hasn't it been doing defense better? @ncweaver's Q abt Dual_EC... @henryfarrell

emptywheel @Susan_Hennessey Arg might be more persuasive if it tried to explain imperative. NSA's release on this was fluff. @henryfarrell @ncweaver
