Fannie Mae is located in Wash, DC.....and both are very troubling quasi govt agencies subsidized and bailed out by taxpayers.
<><> A recent Inspector General's report claims Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are masking billions of dollars in losses.
<><>Fannie/Freddie are centerpieces of the criminal enterprise called the Democrat Party-appointed Dem cronies and collaborators loot the organization, get cushy jobs, bonuses, etc. Fannie Maes political machine dispenses campaign contributions, jobs to friends and relatives of legislators, hires armies of lobbyists (even paying lobbyists not to lobby against it), pays academics who wrote papers validating the sub-prime home ownership mania, and spreads charitable contributions to housing advocates across the congressional map.
In sum, Fannie Mae serves as an industrial-sized patronage factory sharing profits with political allies, spreading taxpayer funds to voting blocslike ethnic groups-and doling out jobs to left-wing academics, Washington has-beens and back-scratching cronies.

This conduct is intolerable. A scathing article follows--a must read.
