Democratic (and Obama) Fund-Raiser Nemazee Indicted In $292 Million Fraud
NasDaq ^ | 9/21/09 | Chad Bray

Posted on 09/21/2009 3:33:07 PM PDT by pissant

NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- New York businessman and prominent Democratic fund- raiser Hassan Nemazee was indicted Monday for allegedly defrauding three banks out of $292 million in loans.

Nemazee, 59 years old, was charged with aggravated identity theft and three counts of bank fraud in the indictment. Each bank fraud count carries a term of up to 30 years in prison.

A lawyer for Nemazee didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Nemazee, who was involved in various presidential campaigns and once served as finance chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, was initially charged criminally in August related to a loan he allegedly obtained fraudulently from Citigroup Inc.'s (C) Citibank unit.

Prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan also are seeking $292 million in forfeiture in the case.

In the indictment, prosecutors alleged that Nemazee obtained hundreds of millions of loans from Bank of America Corp. (BAC), Citigroup and HSBC Holdings Plc (HBC) between 1998 and 2009.

Others might not like him testifying, as well.

Nemazee was New York Finance Chairman for the Kerry campaign, as well as having served as national finance chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. He was largely responsible for the Dems taking back the Senate; he is in bed with Schumer (eww, bad mental image). He served as Finance Chairman for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, and donated $50,000 (the max allowed) to BO's Inaugural Committee. I have a huge file of this guy. He is definitely bad news.

Everytime I see one of these headlines, the first thing that pops into my mind is 2006 and the RAT party using the smear "GOP, Party of Corruption". What did the GOP do about such slander - NOTHING.

If a Democrat fundraiser defrauds banks for contributions to Democrats, is this any different than Democrat government commandeering banks and forcing them to fund Democrat policies, or Democrat government blackmailing federally funded programs like thew NEA to promote Democrat agenda issues?

Wade Rathke, one of two founders of ACORN, SEIU, and a hundred or more similar TIDES Foundation front-organizations, described the cozy 'helpful' relationship that HSBC provided. The following is part of the book main book review for Rathke's latest book:
"But community organizations can’t do it alone. Rathke describes
ACORN partnerships with HSBC Bank
and H & R Block that helped these businesses see building citizen wealth as a new market opportunity"
I suggest that Nemazee was the money-conduit from HSBC to ACORN and SEIU.

A Democrat involved in fraud. How can that be? Democrats only care about the poor, oppressed, social justice and all that baloney they spew.

Man, you Democrat voters are SUCKERS. Democrats are experts at fraud and you Democrat voters are nothing more than willing accomplices in their felonies.

Interesting Obama believes that having the AG of the U.S. investigate and witch hunt members of the CIA that are serving honorably in the service of thier country is a better use of taxpayer money and government resources then say investigating ACORN or any number of these corrupt Democrat fundraisers or even leftist militant poll workers who during the election brandished knight sticks at polling places hollaring “You are about to be ruled by the Black Man, Cracker” ....

Pravda says .... Pay no attention to what you think you see, because we will tell you all there is to know about Obama and the Democrats, Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.

Or Democratic government, via “non profit” group ACORN (with aid of taxpayer dollars), strong-arms banks into giving loans to less than credit-worthy inner city poor, to garner political support from that segment of the population, which then causes a snowball effect that eventually causes a huge mortgage lending crisis, which turns into an economic crisis, which Democrats then use to get trillions of bailout money, which they then turn around and award to their loyal cronies, while sending the government deeper into debt and stalling recovery, causing more to go on welfare rolls .....
and on and on it goes. Sly devils, aren’t they?

No one can EVER say that there is "no difference" between Republicans and Democrats and do it with a straight face.

“That is not the Hassan Nemazee I knew!”

“Hassan Nemazee?? Never heard of the guy, and anyway, excuse me Mr. Reporter, I’m busy looking for my secret floppy hat given to me by some CIA guy on a top-secret mission up the river into Cambodia”

— John Kerry —

“Republicans represent the culture of corruption.”

— Nancy Pelosi —

“Reminds me of my days as a money whore in Buddhist Temples.....so glad to be done with that stuff... Now I get to strut around pretending I have big “ideas” that matter”

— Al Gore —

“Does this story hurt Obama more than me? If so I’ll jump all over it with both feet”

— Hillary Clinton —

“Yawn, nothing to see here, let’s move along now”

And if not him, "suspicious" things will start to happen across the board -- to the prosecuting attorneys, judges, any media member who dares not bow at the feet of this Empty Suit.

He'll either be acquitted on technicality/thuggery, to the huzzahs of the MSM, as well as "Republicans' smear tactics fail again." If he's convicted (not that the Empty Suit or MSM would let that happen, but we can hope) that'll hold him up as Someone the Republicans Wanted to Take Down -- Could Obama Be Next?

In fairness to Mr. Nemazee he is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law like everyone else.

If this is true, then it is just exhibit # 7,802,883,429,981 to prove that God has a sense of humor.
