Barney Frank accused of cooking books for gay lover Herb Moses
By Angie Anthony on September 26th, 2008
Barney Frank, who is openly gay, had a past romantic relationship with Herb Moses, an executive for Fannie Mae. Barney Franks involvement was alleged to have persuaded him to cook the books (finance accounts) for Fannie Mae.
The Washington Post reported this story in its Reliable Source column in July 3, 1998. By the time the story broke in The Washington Post, the newspaper admitted that Barney Frank and Herb Moses had broken up. However, this was conflicting as Barney Frank was heard referring to Herb Moses as his spouse. Another report from the same newspaper said Barney Frank called Herb Moses as his lover. The two men had remained friends despite the said breakup. The romantic affair ended around 1998, ten years ago.
Barney Frank is accused of misleading the officials about the finance situation in Fannie Mae because his friend (or spouse/lover) Herb Moses was a top executive in the mortgage firm. Herb Moses left Fannie Mae in 1998 and ended his relationship with Barney Frank at around the same time.
Bawney is GAY
This means he is a happy homo (funny, he acts awfully angry all the time.
A mere coincidence I am sure.
Really? You could knock me over with a feather!
He seems more pensive than gay.
Funny how most of us who pay even passing attention to something other than the MSM, have known this for a year or so??
Yeah, and John Kerry served in Viet Nam.
Moderate McCain and his band of Moderate Republicans knew about this, too. But they would rather blame capitalism itself than use this political gift from heaven.
Nice to see the post anyways- I missed the WAPO ref, though knew of the butt buddy like most. Thought he was a paper pusher.
Now this celebgal has a page where the orig uncut SNL skit w/ Barnett and the Sandlers is supposed to be and IT ISN’T THERE
so CAN ANYONE GET IT TO ME?
If BWANEY F ... f.... ok FWANK and Dufus DODD wouldhave kept their PIEHOLE’s SHUT... Market would have turned around 2 months ago and Fwank, Dodd, Schumer, RANGEL, Raines, Gorelick, Cuomo would all be doing a chain gang tango.
BUT .. by inserting their .. (nevermind) have people stupid enough to believe that this is capitalism’s Fault, and will BEG them to install MARX as our ‘’’God”’’
Sorry, I do not get why “Bawney” is in trouble. The cooking etc ended in 1998. Yes, he is guilty of screwing the country with nonsensical mortgage loans he engineered and which in turn destroyed the world economy, the “Bawney” economy Comrade Obama claims he inherited, insinuating “Bush”. But as far as I know, “Bawney” has not testified or done any thing else to continue the conspiracy or perjure himself. Please explain how an idiot who has dodged criticism thanks to the MSM et. al., can be in trouble... at least now or in the known future? TIA
What Fannie Frank was doing to Moses, he is now doing to us.
Pray for America and Our Troops
“He seems more pensive than gay.”
Most catchers of hard balls ARE ‘pensive’...the prob with bawney is he can’t catch or pitch...he is just a fag.....lol
OKOKOK...headed to bed before i get toasted...lol
Barney Frank is accused of misleading the officials about the finance situation in Fannie Mae because his friend (or spouse/lover) Herb Moses was a top executive in the mortgage firm.
Bawney seems to have Fudged more than the facts for his lover Herb Moses who was on top while an executive in the mortgage firm.
Really? Kerry served in Vietnam? I would have thought that he might have brought that up during his presidential campaign. :=)
You missed the last year on free republic didn’t you. Barney and friends were taking contributions and kickbacks and saying fannie and freddie are just fine until the shiite hit the fan. There are literally TONS of implicating statements from the pimp. But Dodd’s lips are sealed.
I hope this gets WIDE coverage! Folks need to know what a slime he is for his part in the economic mess we’re facing right now!
He’s the number one slime. And he’s getting away with it just as he has gotten away with other tawdry corruption in his past.
Not only is he gay, but he is also a liberal.
His first boyfriend, a Senate page, ran a gay prostitution ring out of Barney’s townhouse. Of course, Big B got away with having absolutely NO idea of the crime. what is it with Massachussets propensity for electing men who either drown their women or pimp their men??
28 The LORD will afflict you with madness, blindness and confusion of mind. 29 At midday you will grope about like a blind man in the dark. You will be unsuccessful in everything you do; day after day you will be oppressed and robbed, with no one to rescue you.
Come on folks.
Barney fag had a boyfriend run a homosexual call boy ring out of his home and got lauded on the congress floor.
Kennedy killed Mary Jo and got lauded.
Obamma lamma ding dong is a perfect leader for these unAmerican socialist baby murdering sociopaths.
Yes, I missed a lot, only sporadically reading Free Republic, but stopping Comrade Obama has peeked my interest and so I signed up. Nevertheless, with the WH and Capital Hill in Commie control and the MSM getting their guidance from PRAVDA I still don’t see “Bawney” in twouble.
If BF or Dodd are on the investigating committee I am sure they will continue to rewrite history. Indeed, I see problems for those whom ACORN and other Racist Organizations intimidated into making the loans. Thus they forced Wall St. to package the risky loans to to keep the Shi’ite flowing. (BTW I have to gloat over the Wall Streeters, including Cramer, who donated to “The One” and now see what we saw.)
The mortgage loans to constituent borrowers)illegals, unworthy borrowers, etc. is all part of the National Democratic Party (NDP) plan to gain one party control of the country for ever, if possible, and it is possible. Once the NDP slants the Census with false park bench residents, the reallocation of Congressional seats to the good little National (or International) Socialists (NDP) will be complete. Obama for life could be next.
All Just My Opinion
REFERENCE Back in early Feb the FBI told the Senate Judiciary Committee that 530 investigations of fraud are in place "directly related to the current economic crisis" Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are on the target list.
BARNEY FRANK AND FRIEND Cong Barney Frank (D-Mass), and his live-in Herb Moses (then-employed as director of Fannie Mae Product Initiatives) lived together in Washington.
According to National Mortgage News, Mr Moses helped develop many of Fannie Maes affordable housing and home improvement lending programs. In light of the trillion dollar Fannie Mae collapse, critics assert such programs led to the mortgage meltdown that prompted the government takeover of Fannie Mae and its financial cousin, Freddie Mac.
The two mortgage giants are blamed for spreading toxic mortgages throughout the private financial sector--leading to a worldwide economic crisis.
COLLUSION In point of fact, Cong Frank spent the better part of those years blocking lawmakers from imposing tougher regulations on the two mortgage behemoths. In 1991, the year Mr Moses was hired by Fannie, the Boston Globe reported that Cong Frank pushed Fannie Mae to loosen regulations on mortgages for 2-3 family homes, even though these homeowners were defaulting at twice and five times the rate of single homes, respectively. This might indicate Moses and Frank were colluding in government activities that worked against Fannie Mae shareholders.
Cong Frank and Mr Moses broke up as a couple in 1998, a few months after Moses ended his seven-year tenure at Fannie Mae when Mr Moses was employed as Assistant Director of Fannie Mae Product Initiatives.
POSSIBLE FRAUD CHARGES Government-financed groups, connected to government employees involved in fraudulent mortgage lending, might be charged with operating a sophisticated tax fraud and money-laundering scheme involving hundreds of millions of dollars disguised as investments or philanthropy. Federal charges might include conspiracy, money laundering, electronic and US mail fraud, and computer trespass.
Authorities might find millions of dollars in campaign contributions were solicited then laundered through government agencies---- which were fronts to commit government fraud, tax fraud, and other crimes.
Campaign donors might have colluded to receive cash payments through an underground money transfer network which operates in ethnic enclaves (such as NYCs Diamond District). Donors may have been reimbursed through wire transfers from government entities into secret accounts to banks based offshore.
US banking laws may have been violated thusly: the named individuals may have electronically wired monetary transfers from bank accounts of US government agencies into secret accounts offshore. The co-conspirators could have allegedly facilitated loans to Americans at American branches of offshore banks so that the secreted money could be used in the United States out of sight of the IRS, SEC and US banking laws.
Co-conspirators could have (1) hired private money transfer agents, or (2) might have made spurious real estate investments as the means to secretly repatriate their money into the United States out of sight of the IRS, SEC and US banking laws. (3) The conspirators may have paid money-laundering fees to have their money hidden in secret accounts at offshore banks out of sight of the IRS, SEC and US banking laws.
Charges might include: (a) conspiracy to defraud the IRS, and evade US banking laws, (b) international money laundering, (c) conspiracy to commit money laundering, and, (d) aiding and abetting the preparation and filing of false federal income tax returns (stolen money is taxable).
Conspiracy counts might include mail fraud, electronic fraud, and accounting fraud. Authorities might examine the named government entities for using fraudulent receipts to falsely verify disbursements of government funds and multiple conspiracies to benefit from fees charged for transfers of funds as part of the money-laundering conspiracy.
Persons and organizations of interest to law enforcement might include:
(1) Hon Barney Frank (D-Mass), House of Rep, 2252 Rayburn Building, Washington, DC 20515, Tel: (202) 225-5931
(2) Herb Moses, former-Assistant Director of Fannie Mae Product Initiatives, Current address unknown
(3) FRANKLIN RAINES, ex-Fannie Mae CEO (fired for cooking the books, Raines walked away with $90 million in lifetime government benefits.
A common theme in Mr Frank's Congressional oversight, and his companion, Mr Moses, Fannie Mae activities (as then-Assistant Director of Product Initiatives) appears to be the involvement of Franklin Raines, then-Fannie Mae CEO.
Public records indicate that then-Fannie Mae CEO Franklin Raines mishandled billions of government dollars over which Cong Frank had regulatory authority, together with Mr Franks companion, Mr Moses (then-Assistant Director of Fannie Mae Fannie Mae Product Initiatives).
Mr Raines was ultimately fired for falsifying, then filing, official documents...... and had apparently cooked the books and pocketed illegal bonuses. L/E should order Franklin Raines to turn over all records in his possession related to Cong Frank, and Frank's companion, Mr Moses....... including properties financing and financial strategems Raines supervised.
THE MODUS OPERANDI?
L/E needs to determine whether Fannie Mae principals colluded to move millions through lawyers' trust accounts without divulging the source of the money. Fannie Mae principals might have been concerned about potential criminal liability through the laundering of the proceeds of criminal activity via government agencies into lawyers' accounts.
Authorities need to determine the extent to which Fannie Mae principals colluded in schemes that may have included misusing government reserve accounts, concealing losses, inflating asset values and improperly accounting for computer transactions, and the extent to which Fannie Mae principals could be charged with illegally sending monies out of the country to offshore money-laundering havens.
Prosecutors should explore the extent to which Fannie Mae principals directed the preparation of phony receipts for illegal property transactions and who among the co-conspirators might be charged with aiding and abetting illegal money-transmittals, and with fasifying official records.
Fannie Mae Investors, shareholders and taxpayers demand to know the extent to which the named individuals directly or indirectly, singly or in concert, with computers, computer technicians, by use of the means and instrumentalities of interstate commerce and by use of the mails, electronics, or a facility of national banks, investment vehicles, and/or a national securities exchange, knowingly or recklessly, in connection with facilitating government fraud:
(1) employed devices, schemes and artifices to defraud, (2) made untrue statements of material fact and omitted to state and federal bank authorities material facts necessary in order to make statements made, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, and (3) engaged in acts, practices and courses of business which operated as a fraud and deceit upon bank investors, shareholders, bank patrons, and other persons.
Authorities should investigate Fannie Mae's US Postal Service mailings, wire transfers, computer transfers, electronic submissions, and unregulated money transfers, and all bank transfers connected to these individuals and government agencies.
Fannie Mae's government fraud activities might have involved using checks passed from one account to another in multiple conspiracies to launder monies. The stratagem could have been international in its scope due to worldwide connections.
Authorities need to determine the extent to which collusive schemes may have included misusing Fannie Mae reserve bank accounts, concealing transfers, inflating asset values and improperly accounting for transactions.
Authorities need to determine the extent to which Fannir Mae principals are open to prosecution, and the extent to which fraudulent activities caused financial harm to Fannie Mae investors, shareholders, US taxpayers, and other persons.
Fannie Mae principals might have fraudulently accounted for excess benefit transactions and may have improperly accounted for bank transfers that might have evaded the IRS, SEC and FEC.
It has not yet been determined the extent to which Fannie Mae principals engaged in fraudulent banking practices, and whether co-conspirators directly or indirectly, singly, or in concert, with computers, computer technicians, interconnected software, by use of the means and instrumentalities of interstate commerce and by use of the mails, electronics, or a facility of national banks, investment vehicles, and/or a national securities exchange, or other investment vehicles, knowingly or recklessly, facilitated government fraud.
Fannie Mae principals might have facilitated government fraud by integrating:
1. Exclusive control over Fannie Mae Product Initiatives banking functions.
2. Requiring only one signature on Fannie Mae Product Initiatives bank checks.
3. Utilizing pre-signed Fannie Mae Product Initiatives bank checks.
4. Using secret bank accounts to hide the actual financial position of Fannie Mae Product Initiatives.
5. Assigning bank deposit and account reconciliation functions to one person.
6. Conspiring to hide oversight of expenses and supporting vouchers from public view.
7. Having no outside auditor to review Fannie Mae Product Initiatives bank statements.
8. Cashing unusually large amounts of Fannie Mae Product Initiatives checks.
9. Overriding official government deposit and withdrawal control systems.
Jeepers, I sure hope Barney and Herbie paid all the taxes due (stolen money is taxable).

Ping to post #30
Barney Frank, who is openly gay, had a past romantic relationship with Herb Moses, an executive for Fannie Mae.
Yuck. That is just siiiiick.
'Barney Frank', 'Openly Gay', and 'Fannie' should NEVER be used together in the same sentence - ever.
Excuse me while I go hurl...
Barney, the Dancing Queen of Fredie/Fannie, isn’t guilty of anything.
He just made sure that poor illegals and other minorities could own homes like the rest of us inspite of no income and bad credit ratings.
Silly conservative woman, don’t you know that Rat minorities and fags, er, gays, in Congress can never commit a crime or violate tax laws? :)
Dave - check out post #30. If they "follow the money" they'll get the crooks. Thanks for the ping.
This is an old article from last September. And now that Eric Holder is 'our' AG and who would be the one to go after Bawney Fawg and his 'Fannie Lover' with any investigation will sweep this down the memory hole like it never happened.
Bush and his Admin, and the republicans in Congress knew about Bawney's shenanigans and did squat. Bawney's now off the hook.
When I read romantic relationship with Barney, I immediately want to place my finger down my throat and heave!
But I, for one, do not EVER intend to back down. Im not laying all my cards on the table here--but there are ways to bring these people down......... with or without Holder.
Remember, crooks always make mistakes.
The statute of limitations on fraud is 5 years from the time you first learn of the fraudulent conduct. Also, it runs from the last act in furtherance of the conspiracy...
If we just recently learned that Barney’s spouse “cooked the books” at Fannie Mae, then look for him to be frog-marched out of the Capitol Bldg soon.
I just read post 30. Great post. You’re way ahead of me.
Glad you liked it....even though I’m not laying all my cards on the table here (/snic).
The LEFT wants to change the law. Here is their second recommended change in 2008, which wasn't passed. “Second, the legislation would extend the statute of limitations for five years after the end of the conflict. The statute of limitations today for criminal fraud offense is five years from the time of the offense, and this bill would just toll the running of the statute during the conflict itself and not a day longer.”
I left in their statement as to “conflict” to show why they want the change...to try Bush, military etc for fraud.
So “Bawney” may skate, I think he belongs in jail, but I would not want to see a Leftist vendetta against the Bush Administration.
(I did a quick Google to obtain the information, and I do not intend this as a criticism of your contention.) All JMO
Lets hope so. I fully expect Raines, Moses and Dodd to take the stand as perps.

House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) wants the culprits in the financial crisis punished, and hes asking for both criminal and civil investigations.
Rules dont work if people have no fear of them, Frank said at a news conference Thursday.
Frank announced a hearing March 20 with Attorney General Eric Holder, bank regulators and the Securities and Exchange Commission as witnesses to discover what their plans are to prosecute irresponsible and, in some cases, criminal behaviors.
Frank says he isnt looking for names, but he does want all the people with enforcement power state and federal in that room.
Frank also announced that two financial entities either have returned or are planning to return a total of $7.6 billion worth of Troubled Asset Relief Program funds, including Northern Trust, which returned $1.6 billion to the feds after taking heat for sponsoring a PGA tournament after taking TARP money.
He was literally in bed with Fannie Mae for some fanny.
We really need to nuke DC, it’s the only way to be sure.......
Spoken like a true liberal - rule with an iron fist. Just sounds a little out-of-place coming from Bawney Fwank.
Aw come on now, don’t anyone twy to convinth me Bawney Fwank ith gay. Bawny had nutthin to do width thish thuff.
NOW I WILL WASH OUT MY MOUTH.
Appears the stimuli was crucial for election 2010, because these people broke the proverbial bank for election 2006 and 2008.
