Alex Sink, Bill McCollum and Rick Scott are major candidates in the race to become Governor of Florida. None of the candidates is perfect or pristine and, in my humble opinion, African American voters may be considering casting their ballots for the lesser of three evils instead of two.
Rick Scott is a billionaire but much of his money came from a company he headed that was found to have committed a reported enormous amount of Medicaid fraud.
But this column will focus on Sink and McCullum, two candidates that are currently in office and are currently supposed to be serving and protecting Florida citizens.
Bill McCollum is the Florida Attorney General, allegedly Florida’s top cop, and Alex Sink is Florida’s Chief Financial Officer or Florida’s chief financial crime investigator.
Well, history is the best teacher. If you want to know if Sink and McCollum will “fight” for you as Governor, let’s see how they “fought” for you as members of the Florida Cabinet.
It’s common knowledge that the State of Florida is one of America’s safest havens for predatory lenders, ponzi schemers and financial crooks. Florida was home to the Madoffs and Rothsteins, and a favorite spot for the Wells Fargos and Freemont Investment and Loan companies that swindled thousands of Floridians out of their investments and concocted illegal residential foreclosure actions.
Fight for me as Governor? I don’t think so! What financial criminals has Sink investigated? What financial criminals has McCollum prosecuted?
Don’t take my word for any of this. Read the facts for yourself. Call your little politicians and say Lucius is talking about them and see how they respond.
Both Sink and McCollum should know or should have known that financial criminals were not only robbing individual citizens, the crooks were also playing loose and free with money that the financial criminals owed local governments for transfer fees, assignment fees and other government financial transaction fees.
There is an electronic recording system devised by and for the convenience of predatory lenders and financial criminals called “MERS”. This system allows financial crooks to “document” changes in property title ownerships.
Both Sink and McCullom knew or should have known that the use of MERS to document or change titles, transfers and assignments of properties in Florida is illegal.
Why? Because use of MERS breaks the chain of title, allows criminals to get away without paying local government fees and is an explicit and factual violation of Florida Law!
Can I prove it? Yes!
Florida Statute 701.02 specifically states that “(1) An assignment of a mortgage upon real property or any interest therein, is not good or effectual in law or equity, against creditors or subsequent purchasers, for a valuable consideration, and without notice, unless the assignment is contained in a document that, in its title, indicates an assignment of mortgage and is recorded according to law.”
When Sink and McCollum got complaints from Florida citizens that claimed they were being victimized by predatory lenders and financial criminals, it seems they both ignored those complaints.
Will they both ignore complaints if voters vote for them to become Governor of the Sunshine State? Time will tell.
I know all of the African Americans in Florida that like to bow down and suck up to candidates in hopes of getting a job, don’t like me to write like this. But Florida’s homeowners and law abiding citizens deserve the best public service they can get. They are paying for it with their life savings and perhaps their economic lives.
Be careful who you vote for because you might just elect an imperialist puppet that will allow financial law breakers and other criminals to run free.
