Barbara Boxer got caught omitting some facts about her own relationship with Countrywide.
A watchdog group is questioning whether Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer could have been more transparent over a year ago in voluntarily disclosing the extent of her past mortgages with the company Countrywide.
But one watchdog group says she wasn’t disclosing enough. According to extensive research provided to The Daily Caller by the non-partisan Foundation for Ethics in Public Service, Boxer conducted business with Countrywide on another property too — as co-signer of a house with her son. The group argues that if you add up all the transactions, including re-finances, on those three properties, Boxer has actually signed for at least seven Countrywide mortgages.
— From 1993 to 2006, Boxer and her husband made four mortgage transactions (including re-financings) on a home in Marin County, Calif.
— From 2001 to 2007, the Boxers had two mortgage transactions on a condo in Washington D.C.
— And from 2002 to 2003, Boxer and her husband co-signed a mortgage for their son’s house in Alameda County, Calif.
And she is overseeing hearings in to Countrywide which just re-started. Nice.
