‘Friends of Angelo’ Probe Dropped by House Ethics Panel

Citing a lack of any “specific credible evidence of actual violations” within its purview, the House Ethics Committee last week announced it has dropped its probe of alleged legislative influence pedaling related to Countrywide Financial’s “VIP Program.” In a statement dropped on Dec. 27, the committee said that although there was some evidence of mortgage loans made to House members and staffers through Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo's “Friends of Angelo” program, the allegations are either too dated or involve individuals no longer serving in the House.

What will Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s new 97 LTV programs mean for your business?

It will give our business a big boost as there is a lot of pent up demand for the product.
It will have only a minor impact on our overall business as we already are doing high LTV business through FHA and some of our high LTV FHA business is likely to shift to Fannie and Freddie.
It won’t have any impact on our business as we plan to steer clear of all high LTV business – particularly in the GSE market.
