It Appears Ed DeMarco Is No Clint Eastwood
On Sunday, a group of 500 protesters from the National People’s Action converged in front of the home of Ed DeMarco, the Acting Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency. FHFA is the government agency established to oversee mortgage behemoths Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac after they fell under government control in 2008.
In peaceful protests and public stunts, NPA has been doing various activities to raise people’s awareness of FHFA’s refusal to work with homeowners. Like in February when their Detroit chapter placed signs on freeway overpasses across Detroit demanding President Obama fire DeMarco.
Contrary the public image that painted DeMarco as a bad ass J. Edgar Hoover type bureaucrat that scares President Obama into keeping him around, witnesses claim DeMarco, who was home, ran into his bathroom, locked the door and cowered in the bathtub while he dialed 911 as if he was some abused woman in a bad Lifetime movie as protesters converged on his front lawn.
