Review Mortgage Lenders

Acorn Housing Corp

ACORN Housing -- Katherine Conway Russell

The Diverging Perspectives of Candidates in City Council Runoff Election

She said she would support what her constituents want. She said she is a homeowner too and understands that a homestead is likely a family’s largest investment asset. But Dewitt said she’d ask questions first. She said, “I’d want to know why they were against it. Let’s talk about the facts and have reasonableness. Because at one point during the last housing discussion, the comment was, ‘those people.’”

“Well, who are 'those people'?” Dewitt asked. “And why do you feel that way?”

During the campaign, Dewitt has been criticized for being a community organizer, a buzzword that can kill a political campaign in west Texas. Lyleann Thee wrote us, warning that, “Billie Dewitt is a member of the West Texas Organizing Strategies (WTOS). That's a community-organizing group that was part of ‘Acorn’ before it had it to be disbanded for political corruption. They advocate ‘social justice,’ free everything: healthcare, education, food, housing, birth control, etc., in exchange for personal liberty. They are also in favor of open border, WTOS meetings are closed to the public!

Private Equity: The New Neighborhood Loan Sharks

This probably underestimates the number, as many buyers don’t understand the transaction well enough to report it to the census. Most states require that land contracts be recorded, but many sellers do not bother to do so.

Yet the opportunities for abuse are plentiful. Most contracts for deed (CFDs) are not subject to the Truth in Lending Act and other consumer protections that most traditional mortgage borrowers enjoy. Under a CFD arrangement, the buyer has all of the responsibilities and headaches of a homeowner, including repairs and paying property taxes and insurance, without actually owning anything. Yet buyers have fewer rights even than tenants, who can at least call the landlord to fix a busted toilet or broken lock.

“These contracts exist in a regulatory ‘no-man’s land’ between tenant protections and homeowner protections,” says Sarah Mancini, an attorney with the National Consumer Law Center and co-author of a 2016 report about contracts for deed, “Toxic Transactions: How Land Installment Contracts Once Again Threaten Communities of Color.” “These aspiring homeowners have neither,” she says.

Obama Gives New Grant to ACORN; Did He Violate Federal Law?

Why is President Obama apparently defying federal law by funding ACORN?

Judicial Watch discovered that the Obama administration is flouting the will of Congress by giving federal taxpayer money to ACORN.


Your question should read: "Did he violate ANOTHER federal law?", and the answer is a resounding YES!

He has broken several, and thinks that he does not have to follow the law.
