**CAF Note: While Paul was speaking, I was managing an onslaught of Sheriff of Nottingham enforcers trying to make money by engaging in falsification of evidence to protect mortgage corruption that harmed taxpayers and promote private prisons exploding from conviction of non violent offenders. As one of my attorneys said in 1998, “My family left Germany to get away from these people. Now they are here. Where do I go?” My position is that we stand, turn and address the real problems before us. It took eleven years to win, as the HUD IG’s office was not required to obey the law. As long as they could generate money from lawlessness, they could keep on going. So could the housing bubble. Crime that pays is crime that stays.**
