Former San Fran Fed Employee Threatened To Murder Ex-FHFA Head Ed DeMarco
Zero Hedge ^ | 5-6-14 | Tyler Durden

When it comes to the San Francisco Fed, it is best known throughout the financial community as the group of crack economists who spend millions of taxpayer funds to investigate such probing, for kindergarteners at least, topics as: is water wet, do trees make a sound when they fall in the forest, is it still worth going to college, and are hedge funds important in a crisis. Little did we know that, at least some of them, are homicidal psychopaths with suicidal tendencies. Because this is precisely what was revealed moments ago when Bloomberg reported that the chief operating officer of the Federal Housing Finance Agency and 26-year San Fran Fed veteran, Richard Hornsby, is facing a felony charge for threatening to kill the agency’s former top official, Ed DeMarco, and then kill himself.

Mr. Hornsby allegedly threatened to shoot Mr. DeMarco after making “increasing threatening comments” about him over the course of several weeks, according to court records and Metropolitan Police Department report.

FHFA officials notified the agency’s inspector general about the threats on April 28, after an incident in which Mr. DeMarco was “escorted to a secure location following a report of a threat,” according to the court complaint used to secure the warrant for Hornsby. An FHFA employee, who wasn’t named in the report filed in court, said Mr. Hornsby had threatened to harm Mr. DeMarco and to kill himself.

The incident occurred two days before Mr. DeMarco’s previously announced retirement from the agency. The unnamed FHFA employee told the inspector general that the threats against Mr. DeMarco stemmed from disputes over Mr. Hornsby’s job performance ratings, according to court documents. A spokeswoman for the inspector general declined to comment.
