Jamie Gorelick: the pinup girl for Democrat foolishness strikes again

Given that the Democrats have driven the home mortgage system in the USA to the brink of the precipice with their requirement that loans be given to completely unqualified buyers (including illegal aliens), it is no surprise that Jaime Gorelick, their poster girl for Democrat foolishness, is up to her bustle in the mess, but now we find out that Gorelick has more than usually dirty hands:

It turns out that Clinton operative Jamie ("The Mistress of Disaster") Gorelick didn't just blind America's intelligence apparatus prior to 9/11. And she didn't simply suck down $26 million in salary from Fannie Mae before it imploded. And she didn't only set the stage for the mortgage meltdown. It turns out Ms. Gorelick may have had a teensy weensy conflict-of-interest while managing Fannie.
One of Countrywide's previously undisclosed customers at Fannie was Jamie Gorelick, an influential Democratic Party figure whose $960,000 mortgage refinancing in 2003 was handled through a program reserved for influential figures and friends of Countrywide's chief executive at the time, Angelo Mozilo. Ms. Gorelick was Fannie Mae's vice chairman at the time.

More details at the link, but it's the usual crooked Democrat "VIP mortgage" story with the twist that Fannie Mae's favorite source for crappy mortgages while Gorelick was running the store was Countrywide.
I'm starting to lose count of the number of disastrous and downright outrageous deals this Clinton operative has been involved with. Suffice it to say that if there's any justice in this country, she'll be fitted for an orange jumpsuit momentarily.
Agreed. Here's a nice list of Gorelick malfeasance - she's clearly a busy gal.

Still, look at the bright side, there's some humor in the mess the Donks made out of home mortgages:
What's funny is that even Bill Clinton is blaming Democrats for the mortgage meltdown. Just not himself.
I'm laughing - aren't you?
