Don’t Preach to Others, Maxine! – March 13, 2009
What gall to sit up there on her power throne and preach to the oil company executives while she orchestrates benefits for her own monetary interests in OneUnited Bank as a member of the House Financial Services Committee! During congressional hearings, like the ones where she preached to oil companies’ execs, she criticized government regulators of OneUnited Bank. She also arranged a meeting with Treasury officials for the bank. She and her husband have owned shares, which he continued to own after she sold hers, and he has sat on the board. She claims she didn’t know that OneUnited Bank received $12 million in TARP bailout funds.
